COTTONWOOD, Ariz. ─ Catholic Charities Community Services is providing free tax preparation on Saturday, May 21 for those with low-moderate incomes who need to file a late or amended return. The agency’s goal is to maximum returns by helping people receive all their qualified credits and deductions, including the federal earned income tax credit.
Families with children and household incomes under $49,000, and individuals with incomes under $13,000, may qualify for the earned income tax credit, as well as other tax credits and deductions.
“It’s not too late to file an amended return. We will even help those who are filing late because we want to help people receive every cent they deserve from their tax return,” said Carol Quasula, site director for Catholic Charities. “With $5,657 as the maximum earned income tax credit, it is very important for those who think they may qualify to call us.”

Catholic Charities’ VITA efforts are part of Paths of HOPE, its program to help motivated individuals and families to achieve long-term prosperity.
