Find out if you qualify for free tax preparation

TOLEDO (WTOL) - The tax filing deadline is fast approaching, and many Lucas County taxpayers can get their forms prepared for free.

The Local Cash Coalition is reminding people about the 11 different volunteer tax prep sites around the county. They're also urging people to see if they're eligible for the earned income tax credit, which could mean extra cash for those who qualify.

"Not enough people know about it it. It doesn't do us any good with this great program -- in fact, the No. 1 program to benefit the middle class in the country, if no one is taking advantage of it and that's the problem," said Lucas County Treasurer Wade Kapszukierwicz.

For more information on free tax preparation and to see if you qualify for the earned income tax credit, call the United Way's 2-1-1 information line.
