Send a link to a friend

[MARCH 20, 2004]  As we approach the deadline for filing tax returns, the Illinois Department of Human Services would like to remind low-income individuals and families to take advantage of and apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit when filing this year's taxes. If your family's income is less than $35,000 or your individual income is less than $15,000, you may be eligible for an Earned Income Tax Credit and free tax preparation services.

Qualified workers who are raising more than one child could receive as much as $4,204 in federal refunds and another $210 in state tax credits.

Volunteers are ready to prepare federal and state returns for the current year and, if necessary, file for the credit for three previous years. Volunteers can also provide counseling and advise workers about withholding allowances, filing status and other tax benefits.

For the nearest service location and more information, please contact the Tax Counseling Project at 1 (888) 827-8511.
