United Way of Erie County is partnering with Ohio Business College to provide a free walk-in tax clinic at OBC on Saturday, February 7th from 10a until 1:00p. No appointments are necessary.
With the beginning of tax season, many Ohioans have begun the filing process to ensure that they receive their refunds. To save taxpayers a little extra money this year, when individuals and families can use every extra dollar, United Way of Erie County is partnering with the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks (OASHF) and Ohio Business College to help low- and moderate-income Ohioans obtain free Federal and State income tax return assistance and to identify if they are eligible for other work support benefits.
“Too many Ohio taxpayers miss out on receiving free tax assistance each year just because either they don’t know it’s available or they don’t know where to get this valuable service,” said Pamela Colbert-Brumbaugh, Executive Director for United Way of Erie County. “In addition, at least one in every four taxpayers eligible for the EITC fails to claim the credit, which is why the United Way of Erie County is urging residents to come and visit our location to learn more so they don’t miss out on potential benefits and tax savings this year.”
