What if I am not a US citizen? Many immigrants are eligible for the EITC, including green card holders, refugees and others legally authorized to work. Taxpayers will need to have social security cards or TIN cards for themselves and each dependant. The EITC will NOT hurt your immigration status.

I work and get public assistance benefits; will I lose these benefits if I claim EITC? The EITC does not count as income in determining eligibility for Food Stamps, SSI, Medicaid, cash assistance or public housing.

What should I bring? Social Security Cards for yourself, your spouse and each dependent, picture ID for self and spouse, all w-2 and 1099 forms, last year’s tax return if you have it, proof of health insurance and any other relevant information about your income and expenses for the 2008 year.

*Bilingual preparers will be available for several languages.  Please call ahead to let us know.

FYI: No itemized deductions; short form is preferred.

For a faster refund – Those who choose to have their refund electronically deposited into their bank account will receive their refund sooner!
