Tax Time Saving: IDAs and the EITC
The EITC, the nation’s largest antipoverty program for working families, is a refundable tax credit worth up to $6,000 based on family size and income. By encouraging tax-time saving, partnering with VITA programs in your community to establish referral systems and promoting the use of refund splitting during the tax filing process, you can help your savers advance toward reaching their savings goals.
During the webinar, AFI will:
- Review what the EITC is and how to access it.
- Hear from AFI grantees that have successfully partnered with VITA programs.
- Discuss strategies for communicating with savers about EITC and for collaborating with VITA programs.
Date: Thursday, January 30, 2014
Time: 2:00 – 3:00pm Eastern

The webinar is free to all interested participants.
