KeyBank offers free tax returns on Super Refund Saturday at 3 locationsWritten by Duane Ramsey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
KeyBank is offering free tax return preparation on Super Refund Saturday, Feb. 9, in Toledo, Bowling Green and Port Clinton with sponsoring partners in each community.
Super Refund Saturday is a one-day event during which KeyBank professionals provide free income tax preparation assistance to low- and moderate-income wage earners and held qualified individuals claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
Super Refund Saturday will be held in Toledo from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its partner, United Way of Greater Toledo, at 424 Jackson Street.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wood County District Library, 251 North Main Street in Bowling Green in partnership with United Way in Wood County and at the Sutton Center, 1854 East Perry Street in Port Clinton in conjunction with United Way in Ottawa County.
KeyBank is offering Super Refund Saturday services for the eighth year in partnership with community non-profits to insure these activities as convenient and accessible to individuals in the communities it serves.
“Filing an income tax return can be a confusing process for many, and affording a professional tax preparer may be out of reach,” James Hoffman, president of KeyBank’s Michigan/Northwest Ohio District, stated in a press release announcing the event.
“Super Refund Saturday is part of our commitment to local residents, and we aim to make the service convenient and accessible. It’s gratifying to help people file their federal returns for free and identify additional money through the EITC,” stated Hoffman.
The EITC, originally enacted in 1975, is one of the largest anti-poverty tools in the U.S. It is a refundable credit for low- to Moderate-income families, particularly those with qualifying children.
Qualifying children must be under 18 years of age and must be related by blood, marriage or official decree such as adoption. They must have lived with the taxpayer claiming the EITC within the U.S. for at least half the year.
Receiving the EITC greatly helps to balance the financial burden of families in need. However, taxpayers must file an income tax return to get it, even if they don’t earn enough to pay taxes.
The qualifying parameters for the EITC are too lengthy to include in this report.
