The Perris Valley Family Resource Center will host a free workshop Feb. 10 to assist residents as they prepare their annual income tax returns and to promote the California Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income workers.
The workshop takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Center, 2055 North Perris Boulevard.
Created three years ago, the California Earned Income Tax Credit can be applied to taxpayers whose reported annual income is below $22,300. The credit may be claimed by single employees as well as those with families, residents between 25 and 65 who have worked at least three months in the past year and those who are self-employed.
Qualified recipients could receive up to $6,000 in tax credits. That’s in addition to other credits available through the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit which is available to some filers who earn under $54,000.
Blanca Lopez, Inland Region Campaign Director for the Golden State Opportunity Foundation, addressed the Perris City Council Jan. 30 and thanked them for disseminating information about the California Earned Income Tax Credit.
The City Council presented Lopez with a Proclamation supporting February as California Earned Income Tax Credit Month.
