Company teams with United Way and Lamar University to provide free tax prep
The Woodlands, TX – On Super Bowl weekend, Entergy Texas, United Way of Beaumont and Lamar University volunteers are kicking off the tax season by making sure the big winners are local customers who claim their Earned Income Tax Credit.
Super Tax Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 4 in Beaumont at the Gloria Ramirez Neighborhood Resource Center, located at 2850 Gulf Parkway.
“Providing assistance in securing Earned Income Tax Credits through Super Tax Day events helps our customers and our communities,” said Vernon Pierce, Entergy Texas vice president of customer service. “New tools and programs mean Entergy’s Super Tax Day events have long-term benefits that help power customers’ lives now and in the future. This Super Bowl weekend, visitors to our VITA sites will be the real winners.”
Entergy’s support of the VITA program in the four states the utility serves – Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas – has resulted in approximately 93,000 customers receiving $162 million through the EITC program since 2011. In Texas, more than 6,500 residents have received $8,733,662 since Entergy Texas launched the program by partnering with local advocates six years ago.
