Just File It has a banner year
PLYMOUTH, Mich. (4/23/08)--Eighty-five Michigan credit unions promoted the Just File It! tax filing program this year, helping 3,733 residents claim a total of $6,511,263 in tax credits and refunds--a 240% increase from last year. More than $1.4 million of the amount represented the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), designed for low- to moderate-income families and individuals (Michigan Monitor April 22). The total between credit unions and other non-profit Just File It! partners in Michigan was $12,852,336 in returns and 7,726 filers. “To put well over $6 million back into the pockets of Michigan families during this difficult time for our state’s economy is something of which credit unions should be very proud,” said Michigan Credit Union League President/CEO David Adams. “Credit unions are here to help Michigan through challenging times and will continue to live this philosophy through programs like Just File It! that give lower-income households more money they can use to put food on the table, invest in education or save for the future.”
