  • LINC 1167 Madison Avenue Southeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49507 United States (map)

Friday, January 27, 2017

10:00 am - 11:00 am

LINC, 1167 Madison Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49507

With the goal of helping working individuals and families achieve economic success, the Kent County Tax Credit Coalition (KCTCC) offers free income tax return preparation and assistance with filing tax credit claims, including the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Learn about changes in the tax law that require the IRS to hold certain refunds until February 15, 2017. Many taxpayers may not have access to their refunds until the week of Feb 27th. For those who are looking to use their refund to pay essential bills, this delay may lead them to seek payday loans or lines of credit through tax-prep services resulting in high fees and interest rates.  Rev. Dallas Lenear from the Micah Center will be on-hand to talk about the risks of predatory lending and the effects it can have on a community. This is important information that you can share with your constituents or clients.  

Light refreshments will be served.
