Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day celebrated in Seaside at Community Partnership for Youth, our newest site. This was the kick-off for our 2017 VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) FREE Tax Prep service. VITA prepares both Federal and state taxes for anyone who made less than $54,000 in 2016 and helps local workers collect all the credits for which they are eligible. Alliance on Aging runs a similar tax program for seniors.
Last year, $21,666,750 of Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) was unclaimed in Monterey County - imagine what that money could do for local workers and our economy.
