Alex’s brother has a disability and requires daily attention that limits his independence. With the help of Human Service Center Corporation’s (HSCC) free tax service, Alex was able to maximize his tax refund, which will help him afford the cost of his brother’s care. HSCC’s site operates in partnership with United Way’s Free Tax Prep Coalition, which provides high-quality tax assistance to over 10,000 households at over 25 locations in the region.
The IRS-certified preparers available on-site patiently reviewed Alex’s tax documents and discovered a filing benefit that he hadn’t claimed in prior years. As a result, Alex received a much higher refund – over $4,300, including over $1,100 in Earned Income Tax Credit refunds. Now, Alex can focus more attention on caring for his loved one without the financial worry.
