Tax Time is Coming!
Forsyth Working Families Partnership is a group of community agencies working together to help low-income working families get their maximum tax refund, save their refund dollars, and spend and invest them wisely. The focus of the partnership is to provide free tax preparation assistance and to get the message to as many people as possible about the Earned Income Tax Credit. The EITC is a tax benefit for low to moderate income families, as well as a small benefit for low income workers without children.
Families making under $51,000 or individuals making less than $24,000 are eligible. There will be many sites available around the county, including Goodwill Industries, and local library branches. Taxes need to be completed early for any college-bound child or adult for whom a FAFSA form will need to be completed.
Go to www.ForsythFreeTax.org to see the list of sites where taxes can be filed for free.
