City Helps Families Claim Share of Millions of Dollars in Unclaimed Tax Credits

Theo nguồn tin trên trang mạng của phoenix.gov Jan. 28, 2013 The city of Phoenix Human Services Department launched its Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) campaign to help low- and moderate-income working families who earned less than $50,270 in 2012 with free tax-filing services and an EITC tax credit up to $5,891. Individuals and families who qualify also may be able to file for the child tax credit the education tax credit at the city’s free tax preparation sites, scheduled to open on Jan. 28. In 2012, the Phoenix EITC program provided more than 5,300 families with free tax-preparation services and approximately $7.3 million in refunds to the local economy. However, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and city officials estimate that thousands of Phoenix residents who were eligible to receive the federal EITC failed to claim their money. Nineteen primary sites, located in Phoenix, offer free tax-filing services. A list of Phoenix sites, including hours and days of operation, is available at phoenix.gov/eitc. It is important to note that hours and days of operation vary for different locations. Taxpayers must bring a picture ID for themselves and spouse, Social Security cards and/or Individual Tax Identification Number cards for all household members, proof of income – including W-2s and 1099 Retirement Income – information for other income and all deductions/credits and the amount of money paid to child care provider (if applicable). If filing jointly, both adults must be present to sign the return. The city is partnering with the IRS, Arizona Department of Revenue, Salt River Project and the faith-based community to promote the EITC campaign. For information about the city of Phoenix EITC program, visit phoenix.gov/eitc or call 1-877-211-8661.
