Day Of Help For Filing Taxes
Super Saturday is a day of help in Ohio for residents in need of help filing taxes. Formerly known as the Franklin County EITC Coalition, the Tax Time Coalition of Central Ohio is ready with professionals in the tax business to help others in need of their services.
The 2013 tax-prep program is funded every year by the Franklin County commissioners. This year, $75,000 was released to support the event. Tax Time serves an estimated 400 families on Super Saturday, with many qualifying for the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Franklin County is home to many low income households who appreciate the help when it comes to finding refunds. With 25 percent earning less than $25,000 a year, any amount of tax credit refund is welcome. Super Saturday will be held this year at Columbus Downtown High School at 364 S. 4th Street from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reserving a time in advance is suggested by dialing 211, but residents are free to drop by at their convenience.
Super Saturday will also be host to the Kindergarten-readiness assessments, mobile health van, and a financial resource fair. Residents will get information on banking services, repairing damaged credit, financing college, and other benefit screenings.
