Free Tax Preparation to Be Offered at Cleveland Central Catholic High School

6550 Baxter Avenue, Cleveland, OH

Saturday, February 6, 2016

9:00 am to 2:00 pm

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Third Federal Savings & Loan is once again partnering with Neighborhood
Housing Services of Greater Cleveland, Central Catholic High School,
Cuyahoga County, the City of Cleveland, Enterprise Community Partners,
and several other non-profit organizations to offer free income tax
preparation assistance for individuals & families earning less than
$53,000. IRS trained and certified tax preparers will also help tax
filers identify their eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) was introduced in 1975 with
bipartisan support to help working families with children rise above the
poverty line. As a result, the EITC is widely considered to be the
nation’s largest poverty relief program – and its role as a community
economic development tool is significant since most tax credit
recipients use their refunds to purchase essentials in their local
communities. “Our Super Refund Saturday EITC event signals the start of
the season of putting money back into the pockets of northeast Ohioans;
to help working families achieve greater economic stability,” says Lou
Tisler, executive director of NHS of Greater Cleveland. NHS of Greater
Cleveland is an active participant in the Cuyahoga EITC Coalition.

This Super Refund Saturday EITC event will take place Saturday, Feb.
6, 2016, from 9 am – 2 pm, at Cleveland Central Catholic High School,
6550 Baxter Avenue, Cleveland Ohio.
Volunteer IRS certified tax
preparers will be available to assist participants in filing their
returns electronically. Participants who wish to attend the event
should dial 2-1-1 to make an appointment and to receive information on
what identification and documents they will need to bring with them to
receive the FREE tax preparation assistance.

“On behalf of all of the Super Refund Saturday partners, we are proud to
support our communities and residents by offering this service,” said
Maria Thompson, manager of Community Development Services for Third
Federal. “It is free to qualified participants, and removes the stress,
confusion and cost associated with filing taxes.”
