Goodwill to provide free tax filing services
Goodwill to partner with United Way
– Goodwill Central Coast is working with United Way to provide free tax filing services to their employees and the San Luis Obispo community. The free filing service will enable working families to take advantage of the new California Earned Income Tax Credit, a new refundable tax credit that will give California’s working families and individuals the chance to get more money back after filing taxes.
Goodwill Central Coast and United Way will walk families through the tax filing process to ensure that they are filing properly and getting the correct tax reductions and refunds. Workers who earned less than $52,427 may qualify for the credit and those who earned less than $62,000 are eligible to receive free tax services from MyFreeTaxes.com.
“This is a tax benefit for working people and their families, allowing more dollars to flow into our community. It’s money workers can use for groceries, rent, utilities and other bills,” Edward Durkee, president & CEO of Goodwill Central Coast, said. “We want people who may qualify for EITC to have all the information they need to get it right.”
Preparation assistance is available in the Goodwill Central Coast Career Centers located in Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties. For more information on qualification requirements, or to make an appointment for free tax preparation, call 2-1-1. For more information on Goodwill Central Coast, visit ccgoodwill.org.
