Making Tax Season Easier for Hard-Working Families
PUBLISHED APRIL 6, 2019
Our Southern California associates are breaking down barriers for low-income individuals and families! Earlier this month, our associates partnered with United Way of Greater Los Angeles, California State Assemblymember Miguel Santiago, East Los Angeles Community Corporation, and Boyle Heights Youth Technology Center to offer free tax preparation services for over 80 working families.
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs assist qualified low- and moderate-income families with refund filing and free tax preparation. As the largest anti-poverty program for working families, EITC brings billions of dollars in refunds to qualified taxpayers nationwide, which ultimately helps them jumpstart their savings, pay down debt, and further drive the local economy.
We are grateful for our volunteers who dedicated their time to help working families keep more of their hard-earned money.
