Every year, $14 million in Earned Income Tax Credits is left on the table in Kent County.
Imagine it going back into the local economy instead.
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit aimed at helping working individuals and families achieve economic stability. Workers whose family income is less than $48,279 could be eligible to receive up to $5,657 back of the money they’ve earned in the past year. The Kent County Tax Credit Coalition offers FREE tax return preparation, assistance with filing for the EITC and financial literacy courses.
For more information on the EITC and FREE tax preparation services, call United Way’s 2-1-1 or 616.459.2255 or visit www.hwmuw.org.
