This week kicks off our first week of free tax preparation at our 12 Thomas Jefferson Area Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition sites. Our United Way coordinates the work of the Coalition, and our staff members are handling all the phone calls and scheduling appointments for those sites requiring them (some take walk-ins). The activity level has definitely kicked up a notch, with phones ringing constantly and people walking in to schedule appointments. In addition, we have appointments to help people with their taxes here in our office as well. There are sites through the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, and the UVA Community Credit Union is preparing taxes in their branches in Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson counties.
Anyone who earned less than $51,000 last year can have their taxes prepared for free. AARP sites can help those who itemize on their tax returns; the rest of the sites just do simple returns. Last year our coalition helped local residents save more than $3 million in refunds, returns and saved preparation fees.
Call us at 434.972.1703 to schedule an appointment.
Earn it. Keep it. Save it!
