Tax Return Help
Since the American Rescue Plan expanded the eligibility requirements for the Earned Income Tax Credit, more workers will benefit from this tax credit that ever before, including younger and older workers without kids who are eligible for the first time. As tax season gets underway, it's critical that we spread the word about this expanded eligibility to as many Alexandrians as possible. Workers need to file their tax return by April 18, 2022 to receive this money.

For resources and information to help clients receive the full Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) benefits, check out our website!
