Free Tax Preparation Help For Low-Income Families

From the EveryBlock 6th Ward feed an article from WBBM-TV and an address in the ward where you can utilize this service.
One out of every five people who qualify for the earned income tax credit never claim it. Now, the city is offering help to make sure they do.

In Illinois, 170,000 taxpayers failed to apply for the tax credit. The average refund is nearly $5,000.

This year, the city is operating 30 places for low-income families to get their tax returns prepared for free.
Location and address: St. Columbanus The Glasshouse, 331 E. 71st St.
