2021 Tax Tip for 2020 Tax Returns:


The 2019 Earned Income Tax Credit will reduce the taxes you owe and will even be refunded to you if you do not owe taxes on your return. The credit lifts over 6 million people (including over 3 million children) out of poverty each year.

Important: Prepare and mail in your 2019 Taxes no later than April 15, 2023 if you expect a Tax Refund, otherwise your 2019 Tax Refund will expire. Don't let that happen! On the the hand if you owe 2019 Taxes, file as soon as possible even if you can't pay! Why? The late filing penalties are generally much higher than late tax payment penalties.
