Feb 8, 2018 – On Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018, CHN partnered with KeyBank, Enterprise Community Partners and St. Ignatius High School for the annual Super Refund Saturday, a free tax preparation day for local residents filing a federal income tax return. CHN and KeyBank employees as well as John Carroll University volunteers provided free income tax preparation assistance to low-and moderate-income wage earners, helping them to identify their eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
Each year, thousands of qualifying Americans don’t claim the EITC on their federal income tax returns, meaning billions of dollars in much-needed refunds go unclaimed. Super Refund Saturday is a cost-effective way for local tax filers to navigate the potentially confusing tax preparation process and ensure they are getting their full return.
Our volunteers served more than 200 people. We are grateful to them and to our partners for making this day a great success. Our thanks go out to Cuyahoga EITC, Councilman Kerry McCormack, United Way of Greater Cleveland, Legal Aid Cleveland, Neighborhood Family Practice and Cuyahoga Jobs and Family Services. Also a special thank you goes out to Z107.9 for helping us promote the event!
