Free tax prep pays off for Bethpage member
BETHPAGE, N.Y. (4/6/09)--A Bethpage FCU member recently received a hearty tax refund with the help of the Volunteer Tax Assistance Program after a commercial tax prep service told her she’d have to pay more than $200 to get a $400 refund. Danielle Clemente, a 26-year-old mother of three, received $1,018 with the help of the volunteer assistance program at Bethpage FCU’s Bay Shore branch. Clemente said she decided to use the program because she thought she would be getting more than $400 in refunds from the commercial service, according to Newsday (April 3). The Volunteer Tax Assistance Program operates out of eight Bethpage branches. Anyone with an income of less than $40,000 is eligible to participate. The program helped more than 500 people with refunds this year, the newspaper said.
