Are you eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit?
The Earned Income Tax Credit is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund. If you worked last year and had income of less than $54,884, you may qualify.
To determine if you qualify, United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties, in partnership with the IRS, provides the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA offers free income tax preparation for low to moderate income individuals or families with a combined income under $66,000. In 2018, $6.7 million were returned to our local communities in tax refunds.
VITA is a national program staffed by local volunteers who provide free, confidential and secure preparation and e-filing of tax returns to qualified taxpayers.
There are two easy ways to file. We can do them for your or you can do them yourself. See the options below.
