New website provides tax-filing assistance to long-term care workers
PHI National recently launched a new online portal, Earn, Keep, Save MORE, to help long-term care workers—and their employers—access earned income tax credits and apply for free tax preparation services.
“Each year, about one quarter of families that qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit do not claim it—either because they don't know about it or because they don't think that they will be eligible since they don't owe any taxes,” PHI's senior workforce advocate, Tameshia Bridges, said in a statement.The EITC is a refundable tax credit for low- and moderate-income families and individuals who meet a set of criteria. The portal also houses information on locating Volunteer Income Assistance tax credit. PHI works on behalf people who need home and residential care, as well as caregivers.
