Rep. Eddie Rodriguez announces website that provides free tax filing service
AUSTIN-- State Representative Eddie Rodriguez announces a new, free tax preparation website, available to working families. The website; www.texaslawhelp.org, will help ensure that everyone eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit have knowledge of the credit and claim it.
"Through my support of this project of the Texas Legal Services Center, residents in my district of limited income will be able to file their taxes quickly and with the help that they need, to get the money back that they deserve," said Representative Rodriguez.
Every year, Texas families leave an estimated $1.2 billion in potential tax credits to the federal government, simply because they are unaware of the Earned Income Tax Credit. This website provides an easy way for Texas families to claim all tax credits that they are eligible for.
"I am very pleased to support the work of the Texas Legal Services Center in providing this website for free to the working families in my district," said Representative Rodriguez.
"The Earned Income Tax Credit could potentially bring millions to the families in my district, if citizens know to apply for it. This website will guarantee that they know, and they get the tax return that they need."
