About the Center for Economic Progress. Founded in 1990, the Center for Economic Progress (CEP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping hard-working, low-income families move from financial uncertainty to financial security. From tax help and legal advice to year-round financial coaching, CEP has helped more than 300,000 families with free tax and financial services. Operating one of the largest and oldest tax preparation programs in the country, CEP has been on the forefront of turning tax time into an opportunity for families to get ahead--returning more than half a billion dollars in refunds to Illinois communities.
