Need Tax Preparation Help:

If your family earns less than $53,267 per year, you may qualify for an extra tax refund worth thousands. It’s called the Earned Income Tax Credit, and billions in EITC refunds go unclaimed in our area.

That’s why Entergy and other community advocates support Super Tax Day and local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites.  VITA sites are certified to provide free tax preparation assistance for qualifying families. Why pay hundreds of dollars in fees or loan charges to have your taxes prepared?

VITA sites can help you get your refund– FREE.
