Two New Tax Credit Webinars from NWLC

Rent, groceries, medical bills, car payments... and the list goes on. Life is expensive, but believe it or not, tax season can actually help! That's because thousands of dollars are available as tax credits to many eligible families.

Unfortunately, millions of dollars of these federal and state tax credits go unclaimed each year. So if you work or volunteer in an organization that serves low- or moderate- income families, join us to find out just how you can help them learn about these opportunities.
