United Way Kicks off Tax Season with Grand Opening

Trustee Highlights National EITC Awareness Day

National Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day was January 30 and the community came out to support the United Way’s grand opening of one of its free tax prep centers at Raleigh Springs Mall. Trustee Lenoir joined United Way leaders, Shelby County Commissioner Willie Brooks and Memphis City Councilmen Edmund Ford and Myron Lowery to stress the importance of free tax preparation and the EITC.

 

In Memphis, $30 million to $70 million in Earned Income Tax Credits go unclaimed by low-income taxpayers every year because they don’t know they’re eligible or don’t file a claim.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $53,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.
