Truliant Steps it Up for Tax Season
WINSTON SALEM, N.C. - Truliant Federal Credit Union has opened the doors of its Fred J. Sarda Community Pavilion to host free income tax assistance services through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. The Forsyth Working Families Partnership offers this free tax preparation service through VITA to working families who make $40,000 or less and individuals who make $20,000 or less in annual income. VITA started its partnership with local communities to help eligible families collect the Earned Income Tax Credit. According to the IRS, over $12 million in EITC refunds are unclaimed by working families in Forsyth County. Truliant staffers volunteered their time to offer low-income, working families affordable tax return preparation, encourage savings and increase the number of tax returns completed.
