Free Tax Preparation this Tax Season
EITC Awareness Day was Friday, January 26, 2018. It kicks off tax season every year and reminds us to lift up the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and to help us connect community members to the valuable credit through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), AARP Tax Aid program and/or MyFreeTaxes throughout the tax season.
We need your help in two ways:
- Advocate for the EITC. We know the EITC works. In 2015 this pro-work, anti-poverty program lifted 6.5 million people out of poverty, including 3 million children, and in 2017 it brought back about $65 billion to the pockets of working families across the country. Tell your representative just how critical this working family tax credit is for your neighbors, co-workers, friends and
- Spread the Word – Help family and friends connect to the EITC by using one of the available free tax filing programs. One in five who are eligible for the EITC are leaving money on the table – money that can make a big difference in paying bills and putting food on the table. And anyone earning $66,000 or less in 2017 can do their taxes for free at MyFreeTaxes.com and can connect any credits for which they are eligible.
