Two organizations are coming together to help people this tax season.
The Goodwill and the Earned Income Tax Credit organizations have announced their plans to help low income families file their tax returns. The two groups are footing the bill, so people can get their taxes filed and their refunds fast.
"We are a community program," said Ed Leahy with Earned Income Tax Credit. "When you come into our site, it's not just about your tax return. It certainly isn't about our bottom line. It's about the individual's bottom line and the individual as part of the community."
Ginny Powell with the Goodwill says people will often not file because the forms are too confusing and they can't afford to pay for help. She hopes people will take part in their program.
