Child Support Services To Assist With Tax Returns

The Sierra Nevada Regional Department of Child Support Services is in the business of helping families obtain self-sufficiency, and Director Tex Ritter says that’s why his department is offering free income tax preparation assistance and e-filing of simple returns.  Ritter says they will assist individuals and families to determine if they may be eligible for a refundable tax credit called the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Unlike other tax credits, both Earned Income tax Credit eligibility and the amount of tax credit you are eligible for is based on several factors. like the amount of your income, or combined incomes if married, whether you have qualifying children and how many.  Ritter says his department has IRS certified tax preparers on staff to assist anyone needing help.
