If you could give your employees a significant end of year bonus, at no cost to you, wouldn’t you? For many low-income tax filers, refund tax credits can be essentially that. Research indicates that families mostly use the money received from tax credits to pay for necessities, repair homes, maintain vehicles that are needed to commute to work, and in some cases, obtain additional education or training to boost their employability and earning power.
As we approach the beginning of tax season, we want to provide your social enterprise with the resources to prepare your employees to file taxes. In this webinar we will share information on how to connect your employees to tax preparation resources, more information about the Earned Income Tax Credits, and strategies to help you educate your employees on taxes.
This webinar was delivered by Colleen Smallfield who is the Director of Earn It! Keep It! Save It! (EKS) a coalition of more than 200 partners committed to providing free tax preparation in the San Francisco Bay Area. EKS is managed locally by United Way Bay Area. EKS coalition volunteers file nearly 80,000 tax returns each year, saving clients more than $19 million in fees and bringing back more than $80 million in refunds to local Bay Area communities.
