Earn it, Keep it, Save it
Do You Qualify?


The Boston EITC Coalition is especially interested in promoting the use of the Earned Income Credit, the tax refund for working people. This year the EIC can be up to as much as $5,891. If you are eligible, you earned this money, so don't let your refund go unclaimed!


More importantly, don't spend any of your refund paying for tax preparation - get your taxes prepared for FREE at a neighborhood tax preparation site and keep the money in your pocket! SAVE it or use it to build a better future for you and your family.

Note: even if you do not qualify for the EIC, if you worked and earned less than 50,000, we invite you to come to one of our free tax preparation sites.
