The IRS has created an Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day, and this year it falls on January 27th. For our tax sites, we are trying to increase awareness about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) in a way that people can relate to. As you can see below, we find that mixing some comedy with tax topics makes things a bit easier to understand. I think our tax sites use that same idea, and I think it’s one reason why people really enjoy using our services. Our volunteers enjoy talking about taxes in a way that puts us all at ease, and we tend to walk away from the tax site feeling a bit lighter on our feet.
This video is the first in a series, and it will show you what the EITC is. All our tax sites make sure you receive this credit, if you qualify. Call (815) 494-2936 to make your free tax appointment today, and ask how the EITC can help you this year!
