In 2015, 2,616 local taxpayers claimed more than $4.4 million in federal tax refunds, earned income tax credits, child care credits and tax preparation fees by receiving free tax preparation from the Cville Tax Aid Coalition.
This tax season, free income tax preparation is available to low- and moderate-income working families. We are working to help promote use of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to put money back into our local economy. Anyone with a household income of less than $55,000 in 2016 can receive free tax preparation at any of our sites.
Representatives from the Cville Tax Aid Coalition are also available to conduct short seminars on the EITC for your organization. Contact us if you are interested.

Individual agency efforts to promote the Earned Income Tax Credit in the Thomas Jefferson Area have been in place for many years. In 2007, Virginia Delegate David J. Toscano initiated a local coalition to coordinate efforts and reach all community members eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Community agencies, businesses, and local government are all part of the coalition.
Partners of the Cville Tax Aid Coalition provide:
The Earned Income Tax Credit is a refundable federal tax credit for eligible working families. It can reduce the amount you need to pay in taxes, and could result in a refund of taxes withheld from your earnings throughout the year. In simple terms, the credit allows working taxpayers to keep more of what they earn.
The maximum limit for how much you can earn and still qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit depends on whether you are married and filing jointly and whether you have children. Click here to see the income eligibility requirements and other basic qualifications for the 2016 tax year.
