Crowley: Don't Miss Out on Thousands in FREE Federal Dollars Through EITC!

Jan 30, 2009 Issues: Economy and Jobs

“Tell your friends and family across Queens and the Bronx – don’t miss out on thousands of tax-free dollars – find out today if you eligible for the EITC!” said Congressman Joseph Crowley.  “In these difficult economic times, every dollar counts and this extra boost can really make the difference for many struggling New York families.  Too many qualified individuals fail to clam the EITC credit.  We all need to work together to help spread the word.  So, take a minute today to do the neighborly thing and tell your family and friends about the EITC.”

Three easy ways for taxpayers to find out more about the EITC and determine their eligibility:  

  1. Go online to to learn more;
  2. Call the New York City IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center at (212) 436-1000; or 
  3. Meet one-on-one with tax expert at a local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) preparation site – call 311 to find a VITA site in your neighborhood.

Congressman Crowley is a member of the exclusive House Committee on Ways and Means with jurisdiction over taxation and the Internal Revenue Service.
