BREMERTON — The Asset-Building Coalition of Kitsap County is reaching out to residents to inform them of an opportunity to receive up to $5,751 through the Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income working individuals and families.
According to the IRS, 4 out of 5 taxpayers claim the tax credit. Even if you didn’t earn enough money to file a tax return, you may still qualify for a refund.
Jan. 27 is designated as EITC Awareness Day by the IRS. Residents can find out more at www.kcr.org or by calling 2-1-1. Free tax preparation services are available through the AARP Tax-Aide at 11 locations throughout the county.
You can get free tax-return preparation, free credit reports, credit counseling and other services at the fourth Super Saturday Information Fair, Feb. 11, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Kitsap Community Resources, 845 8th St., Bremerton. The information fair is free and open to the public.
