The Forsyth Working Families Partnership offers this free tax preparation service through VITA to working families who make $42,000 or less in annual income. VITA started their partnership with local communities to help eligible families collect the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). It is estimated that millions of dollars in EITC go unclaimed by eligible working families every year.
Truliant employees are volunteering their time to this program to offer low-income, working families affordable tax return preparation, encourage savings and increase the number of tax returns completed.
Truliant Federal Credit Union’s Fred J. Sarda Community Pavilion is located at 3200 Truliant Way. The hours of operation for this free tax preparation service are Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., from January 31 through April 11.
Individuals taking advantage of Truliant’s free service need to bring the following: picture ID, Social Security card or ITIN and the Social Security card of each independent to be claimed, the employer ITIN or Social Security number of child care providers, W-2 form(s) and or 1099(s), last year’s tax return, amount received from the 2008 stimulus package and if applicable, the amount of their 2008 Advanced Child Tax Credit.
