Save your MONEY! Get your taxes done for FREE!
Tax season is almost here, and many working individuals are eligible for the Earned Income Credit, or EIC. According to Dr. Rebecca J. Travnichek, Family Financial Education Specialist with University of Missouri Extension, households that qualify for the EIC could receive a tax refund of up to $6,044. The EIC is a powerful work incentive and the single most effective anti-poverty program in existence. It’s money that families can use to put food on the table… move into better housing… invest in education… save for the future… and contribute back to the community.
