CASH IN Saturday Kicks off the Tax Season at Northwest Buffalo Community Center
January 26 event offers free tax preparation, other services
For the sixth year in a row, CASH (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope), an initiative of the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County, will hold CASH IN SATURDAY – a one-day event where local residents can get their Federal and State taxes filed for free, and take advantage of a range of other services including credit counseling, benefits screening and more.
Those who made less than $51,000 in 2012 are eligible to have their income tax returns prepared and filed for free. Taxes are prepared by trained volunteers through the local Free Tax Preparation Network. The Network is administered by the Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers (BFNC), a United Way Program Partner, and supported by Creating Assets, Savings and Hope (CASH), a United Way initiative.
Last year, the Free Tax Preparation Network filed nearly 9,000 tax returns, helping local residents access $13.5 million in tax refunds and credits.
In addition to tax preparation, a wealth of other information and services will be available including credit counseling and benefits screening. Local financial experts will be on hand as well. The event is free and open to the public.
WHEN: Saturday, January 26, 2013
8:30 AM – 11:30 AM
WHERE: Northwest Buffalo Community Center
155 Lawn Avenue, Buffalo
Even those who don't have all the necessary documentation to have their taxes prepared should stop by and take advantage of the many other services available. For more information on CASH IN Saturday, call 887-2671.
