Tax Season

Now that the new year has begun, tax season is fast approaching.

Many families do not realize they might qualify for an Earned Income Credit.

Families can claim this income tax credit by completing Schedule EIC with their tax returns. 

Rebecca Travnichek is a Family Financial Education Specialist with the University of Missouri Extension. She says many people also do not realize they qualify for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program which helps low income families prepare taxes.
