Tax deadlines

Our Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Coordinator, Megan Liddle, is operating on hyper-drive this week as she works with all of the partners in the local Thomas Jefferson Area EITC Coalition.

Martha Trujillo, our Information and Referral Specialist, is juggling all the phone calls from last minute tax payers. Free tax preparation is available for those earning less than $49,000 in 2009, and the Coalition hopes to help all those who may be eligible to claim the tax credit. Pamela Frank, our VITA site coordinator for the Friendship Court neighborhood, reports a lot of activity last Saturday.

Megan, Martha and Pamela all know that they are in a marathon this week as they attempt to help all those who qualify for free tax help. We know from past years, however, that those who call on April 14 or 15 and expect help may be disappointed. Here is hoping that all the publicity we did in January and February got most people in the door. Are you a planner or procrastinator when it comes to taxes?
