Regional Earned Income Credit Collaborative and Free Tax Preparation
The earned income credit is the nation’s anti-poverty tool. This year the earned income credit maximum is $6,269 in 2016. But families must file taxes to receive this benefit.
If you are helping people achieve stability and self-sufficiency, you can help them meet their legal obligations, claim credits and get the refunds they have earned. They’ll keep more dollars in their pockets, avoid predatory lending, and maybe even learn a useful skill.
Do you work for a nonprofit organization that serves clients who may be eligible for EITC? Could you or your co-workers benefit from receiving information on the EITC and our free tax prep service?
