Illinois league kicks off tax-help effort
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (1/15/09)--Millions of working Americans are eligible for various income tax credits every year, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), but miss out because they either don't know about them or how to file for them. In response, the Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) has committed to helping credit unions build a stronger community with its latest initiative--http://www.ipaytaxes.org/-- a free Web resource. The consumer-geared website was designed by ICUL for use by its member credit unions to educate consumers and help them make the most of their tax situation. The site includes a “Maximize Your Refund” section with information on the various tax credits that are available, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) details, and other free online tax filing services, and information about credit unions, including how to join. A “Quick Connect” section links to the Illinois State Treasurer's Office, the Federal Trade Commission, and resources available via the Internal Revenue Service. ICUL also has created an outreach action kit to assist with the development of a campaign to market and organize the service. Credit unions will find information--from free marketing material, to detailed information on organizing a community-wide EITC/VITA event. “It is our hope credit unions will support this initiative, and join the nationwide effort in spreading the word,” said Joni Senkpeil, ICUL director of small credit union development.
