NCACU offers free ‘Just file it!’ income tax program

The North Central Area Credit Union is joining forces with other credit unions to offer free state and federal tax preparation resources in a web-based program called “Just file it! We’ll Help. Free State and Federal Tax Preparation Resources Provided by Credit Unions.”

The program allows families and individuals to file for state and federal tax credits that often go overlooked, including the Earned Income Tax Credit which can be as high as $5,600 for low-income, working households. The program returned over $13.5 million to individuals and families last year.

“The need for a program like ‘Just file it’ is greater than ever,” said Kathy Kruch, business developer for NCACU, “which is why North Central Area Credit Union is proud to continue working with the network of credit unions and other non-profits offering ‘Just file it’ to help families put food on the table, move into better housing, invest in education or save for the future.”

To use the program users only need a computer, Internet access, web browser and a printer. The program uses a free, web-based software program that poses questions to users and offers assistance via video tutorials. The program is offered in both English and Spanish.
