Income Tax Assistance Available to Direct-Care Workers
March 29, 2012
With the deadline to file income taxes approaching, two online resources are available to help direct-care workers receive federal and state Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) and other credits, and also access free tax preparation services:
The Earn, Keep, Save MORE website, hosted by PHI, provides information on which states offer EITC and other credits, and Michigan-specific information.
The It All Adds Up Toolkit provides Iowa-specific information and is housed on the Iowa CareGivers Association site.
Long-term care employers are encouraged to use the sites to download materials — paycheck stuffers, fact sheets, and posters — to help their employees make this a rewarding tax season.
