It's been just over 4 weeks since our annual free income tax service opened and we're thrilled to report that our volunteers have prepared and e-filed taxes for 105 local residents so far gleaning a total of about $182,000 in refunds! We estimate that so far, we've saved these friends a total of $26,000 in tax preparation fees!
One of our friends was brought to tears last week when we told her the refund she would be getting -- it was EXACTLY the amount of money she needed to pay off her debts!
We love being able to offer this service for FREE. Just last week, our volunteers helped a 75-year-old woman determine that she didn't need to file taxes because of her income. We were sad to learn that she paid a local tax preparation company $300 last year just for them to review her paperwork and tell her she didn't need to file.
Can we help you or someone you know?
We're happy to review paperwork (for FREE) if you're unsure if you need to file taxes or fit our annual household income of $53,000 or less. To make an appointment, call 704-684-9007.
If you'd rather prepare and file them yourself, there's a free online service that can help. Visit: www.myfreetaxes.com. If your annual household income is under $62,000 you can use this free service!
