Bilingual tax website provides answers to filing online tax returns

LatinaLista — Do you know what EITC means?

If you guessed Earned Income Tax Credit, you don't need to read anymore! BUT if you're like the 20% of people the IRS estimates don't know they're entitled to take the EITC when they get their taxes done, then a new website may help out.
The Wal-Mart Foundation has given a $3.6 million grant to fund a nationwide campaign educating people about the EITC and even providing free tax preparation services for those who qualify.
My Free Taxes is a bilingual site that walks people through the steps of filing an online tax return and links to a site that explains all about the EITC.
With the April 15 tax deadline looming ahead, it's never too early to file those tax returns.
After all, we all could use a little extra cash these days!

    The IRS web site also has bilingual links to its “free file” program that hooks up tax payers with online companies that will assist you with filling out your taxes and e-filing them for free, yes free. If you qualify, you can get a refund as a direct deposit into your checking account in as little as seven to ten days.
    The only catch is that your adjust gross income has to be below $56,000.
