Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day!

Date posted: January 8, 2015

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers are missing out on anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 in tax credits, like the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Care Tax Credit. About 25% of eligible working families fail to claim their money – money families need to help pay for daily necessities – because many people don’t know about these programs.

Our fellow New Yorkers need information on how to get these credits and how to get free tax preparation and financial counseling to make the most of their refund – and YOU can help make it happen. Please forward this message widely  to your community and share online here!

 

ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 31 THE NYC DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS IS HOSTING THE FIRST EVER PHONE-A-THON TO LET OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS KNOW ABOUT REFUNDABLE TAX CREDITS.
