FREE Income Tax Preparation Offered in Jefferson County

FREE income tax preparation and help determining eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is now available from Community Action, Inc.

Tough economic times combined with rising costs of energy, food, and other basic necessities are making life hard for working families, but there may be a way to lighten the burden. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit for low to moderate income working families. The credit can be as much as $5,891! However, you must file a federal income tax return to claim the credit.

Tax preparation by IRS trained volunteers is available by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. through April 11, 2013 at Community Action, Inc., 200 East Mahoning Street, Punxsutawney, PA.

To schedule your appointment and obtain FREE income tax preparation, free e-filing, and help to determine EITC eligibility, contact Community Action, Inc. at 1-800-648-3381, ext. 204.
