Tax season opens in less than a week and while it opened a bit later this year it gives you more time to get your paper work in order.
Robin Freeman, planning director with the Central Arkansas Development Council, offers a few tax tips .
- What is the biggest tax credit people miss out on?
EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT
Many people qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). EITC is a refundable credit for low to moderate income working individuals. For families with 3 or more children making around $50,000, it could be more than $5800 extra on your federal tax return. Even if you're not married, you may still qualify for the credit. Many people don't know they qualify for the credit or don't get the credit because they don't file a return or file incorrectly.
