Hudson Valley CA$H Coalition (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) is a group of organizations dedicated to helping families and individuals in the Hudson Valley save money and improve their financial stability. The coalition provides free federal and state tax preparation for taxpayers living in New York counties of Dutchess and Orange. To ensure the quality of the service, tax preparers receive many hours of training and are certified by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. In 2012 over 5600 tax returns were prepared and filed in Orange and Dutchess counties.
