Impact Alabama announces FREE income tax preparation services to working families making less than $50,000/year with kids in the home or $20,000/year without kids in the home. Families can also enter the SaveNow WinLater Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $10,000 cash Grand Prize by investing in savings bonds. For every $50 eligible families invest in a federal savings bond, they will earn a chance to win a $10,000 Grand Prize at the end of tax season.
The tax preparation service is aimed at assisting families eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC is the federal government's largest and most successful antipoverty program for low-income, working families. However, each year, Dothan families lose hundreds of thousands of dollars to commercial tax preparers simply to access this benefit.
