1. To help low-to-moderate income families (up to $54,000) with tax preparation.Taxpayers are assisted with receiving tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a commonly-overlooked credit that may add more than a month’s worth of salary to the individual or family’s annual income. According to the IRS, 25 % of taxpayers who qualify for the credit do not
apply for it.
People who earn up to $48,279 can claim refunds as high as $5,657. The average is about $1,900. Research shows the earned-income tax credit lifts more children out of poverty
than any federal program. That's because the credit gives a big raise – up to 40 percent –
to working low-income parents.
2. To provide financial literacy education to Kenosha County residents to promote self-sufficiency through wealth building and debt-reduction outreach programs for those outside the financial mainstream. Assets give people a stake in their future and in their community.
During the past four years, the VITA program has brought more than
$5,540,000 back into the Kenosha community!!!
