In an effort to spotlight the difference that tax credits bring to low to moderate-income families, the Head of the Lakes United Way is bringing together community leaders for an Awareness Day assembly on Friday, January 27.  The event will take place at 11:00 AM in Conference Room A at the Ordean Building, 424 West Superior Street.

Tax data shows that lower income families seek to recoup up to 30% of their household income via credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Working Family Credit.

Friday’s assembly will include local community leaders like Duluth Mayor Emily Larson, State Representative Liz Olson, Head of the Lakes United Way President Matt Hunter, a representative from Senator Al Franken’s office, Community Action-Duluth Executive Director Angie Miller, and Earned Income Tax Credit recipient Corisa Thom.

As the April 15 tax deadline approaches, the United Way also reminds potential recipients that qualified EITC filers are also eligible to file their taxes at a free tax assistance site or online at MyFreeTaxes.com.
