FCRC?helped 133 filers with taxes
LISBON - This tax season, staff and volunteers at the Family and Community Resource Center helped 133 local tax filers keep their full refunds through partnership with the Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB), a program of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. Thanks in part to a capacity building grant from the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, the Family and Community Resource Center connected with households with more than $90,000 in tax credits and as estimated $19,019 in tax preparation fees.
Due to the collaborative efforts of library sites: Lisbon, Leetonia, Columbiana, East Palestine, Wellsville and Salem; KSU-Salem and East Liverpool; and Shining Reflections FCRC was able to connect with additional families this year through the assistance of this grant program.
Forty-two OBB sites throughout Ohio received capacity building grants to support their free tax filing services. In total, those grantees helped to file 11,392 federal tax returns and 10,897 state tax returns connecting low-and moderate-income Ohioans with more than $17.8 million in tax credits and refunds.
Hundreds of other faith-based and community organizations also provided free tax filing assistance through the OBB, and many more Ohio taxpayers used the free OBB Self-Serve module at ohiobenefits.org to file their taxes on their own. Statewide, the OBB connected nearly 26,000 Ohioans with more than $44.4 million in tax refunds, helping them keep more of their hard-earned money.
The Ohio Benefit Bank provides free tax filing services year-round, so Ohioans who need to file back taxes or are still owed a refund for this year can visit ohiobenefits.org to file for free today. Since its inception, the OBB has connected over 84,000 Ohioans with nearly $187 million in tax refunds. For additional information, call FCRC at 330-420-0044 and leave a message with name/number.
