About The Benefit Bank of North Carolina

TBB-NC partners with a network of community and faith-based organizations across North Carolina to provide free, counselor-assisted help completing taxes and benefit applications using The Benefit Bank online service. Through The Benefit Bank’s QuickCheck screening tool, clients are able to check for likely eligibility in less than five minutes.

In addition to serving as a benefits eligibility screener, a benefits application filer, The Benefit Bank is also an IRS-certified tax preparation software. A powerful advantage of The Benefit Bank is that a client’s information is safely stored online, allowing inputted data in one application to pre-populate other applications or tax forms (with the client's permission), thus reducing the time required for data entry.

TBB-NC is managed by MDC, a non-profit based in Durham, NC that for 40 years has helped organizations and communities close the gaps that separate people from opportunity.
