Free Tax Prep Assistance Helps Qualifying Customers Claim Refunds
As the saying goes, the best things in life are free — including free tax prep assistance on Super Tax Day. Once again, Entergy worked alongside (or hand in hand) with community partners to staff Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites in February and early March. Their support during 2018 Super Tax Day events helped qualified customers claim more than $770,000 in Earned Income Tax Credits.
EITC is one of the nation’s most effective means of lifting individuals and families out of poverty. In Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, Entergy has helped approximately 111,000 customers receive $195 million through the EITC program since 2011. Watch Entergy volunteers in action in this short video about Super Tax Day 2017.
In New Orleans, Entergy volunteers helped 273 customers claim $275,319 in refunds during Super Tax Day events. To learn more about the Earned Income Tax Credit and VITA locations in your area, visit http://eitclocations.com/.
