Working Louisiana families leave approximately $100 million in federal Earned Income Tax Credit refunds on the table. That can be as much as $4,536 for a family of four.
The state is providing free tax preparation to encourage workers to file. So the Louisiana Department of Social Services teamed up with the departments of Revenue and Labor to open more than 175 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites across Louisiana.
You must earn less than $38,348 a year (married and filing jointly) to qualify. The sites will operate through April 16th.
