As the April 15 tax filing deadline looms, United Way of Erie County has joined the list of local agencies providing free help on tax returns for local residents who aren’t wealthy.
“United Way of Erie County is partnering with the Ohio Association of Foodbanks to help low- and moderate-income Ohioans obtain free Federal and State income tax return assistance and to identify if they are eligible for other work support benefits,” the agency said in a news release.
“Trained counselors at the United Way of Erie County will help Erie County residents prepare and file their tax returns at no cost if they meet the income eligibility requirement of less than $60,000 per year in household income,” the agency says. “If eligible, clients can also claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a special tax refund program for working families and individuals.”
