RILS also offers free legal assistance
to eligible low income and ESL taxpayers! The Low Income Tax Clinic can
help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a taxpayer, such
as information about the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Eligible taxpayers may receive up to $4,400.00
back at tax time, if they file for the Earned Income Credit.
Taxpayers who file electronically will usually
receive their tax refunds, and the Earned Income Credit, much sooner than
those who file by mail.
