EITC Informational Supplement
Citi Community Development has produced Money Matters, an eight-page publication designed to enable hard-working taxpayers to take advantage of the tax benefits that are available to them.
Working with their community partners in a number of U.S. cities, they have created locally-customized versions of Money Matters that include lists of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites, where IRS-trained volunteers provide free assistance with preparing and filing tax returns.
One of the most important services that these volunteers provide is to ensure that working people claim the benefits to which they are entitled, like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which can result in substantial tax refunds.
Money Matters provides details about the EITC along with wealth of other useful information, including tips for stress-free tax filing; what to bring to the VITA site; how to save money wisely; and more. It even features local success stories and a word game!
Many people are not aware of the free services available at VITA sites or benefits like the EITC or that one must file a tax return in order to claim a tax refund. The Money Matters publications will be distributed widely — as inserts in local newspapers (in Sacramento, the Sacramento News and Review) and through community partners.
The individual versions of Money Matters also can be viewed by clicking the links below.
Especially in economically difficult times, every dollar counts. We are pleased to provide this resource for American taxpayers.
