Entergy's ongoing support of the Earned Income Tax Credit and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites demonstrates the company's commitment to empowering families and growing our communities. Since 2009, our support of VITA sites has helped return $298 million to residents throughout our service area.
As the pandemic continues creating economic hardships for many Americans, free tax-return assistance provided by Entergy volunteers has been vital in helping customers receive Earned Income Tax Credits, one of the most effective tools for lifting low-income workers and their families above the poverty line.
Entergy will once again help customers who qualify for the federal Earned Income Tax Credit claim the money they’ve earned. Entergy will also continue its partnership with community advocates to support free IRS-certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance tax preparation services for qualifying customers.
All our stakeholders benefit from our commitments to our most vulnerable customers. As they rise, we all rise, something we can all be thankful for.
