Tax credit help is available
(NET Radio) - Millions of dollars in federal tax credits are available to many Nebraskans and they may not even know it. The State is partnering with community organizations in an effort to help low to middle income families receive the tax credits they've earned. Karen Parde of the State Health Human Services System says many families that are entitled to receive federal tax credits don't file for them. "In a lot of cases it's just a lack of knowledge, they don't know there available or they just don't know themselves how to prepare their income tax," she said. "They don't know how to fill out the forms correctly on their own." Federal tax credits include Earned Income Tax Credit up to 45-hundred dollars, the Child Tax Credit up to 1-thousand per child, and the Child and Dependent Care Credits up to 21-hundred dollars. Free tax preparation sites are set up across the state to help those who qualify.
