Prosperity Campaign launches free tax prep season

Last Friday, January 29th, HSC's Prosperity Campaign had in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) awareness event to kick off their work during the upcoming tax season. It was an exciting event, with appearances by Commissioner Natacha Seijas and Alex Sink, CFO of Florida, and it was particularly informative this year as there have been recent changes in the EITC program. Because of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), taxpayers are now able to claim a third qualifying child. Households can receive up to $5,657 on EITC this year. The event only marks the beginning of the incredible work the Prosperity Campaign will do for people throughout the year.
