Making the most of tax season

Filing taxes may not be a highlight on your calender, but there is an upside for low-income working individuals and families who are eligible for low income tax credits. 

The Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC, can provide thousands of dollars to people who qualify. And there's more good news: trained volunteers are available to prepare tax returns-for free

In Oregon, CASH Oregon in Southwest Washington, AARP Tax-Aide provides free tax preparation assistance for low- and middle-income taxpayers, with special focus on serving seniors and people eligible for the EITC
