FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE COLUMBUS, Ohio (Jan. 29, 2016) – This tax season, Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) is partnering with the Ohio Benefit Bank to offer free income tax filing assistance to military veterans and spouses who meet the income requirements. The requirements are that veterans and spouses filing jointly must have an adjusted gross income of $95,000 or less and everyone else must have an adjusted gross income of $65,000 or less. The free tax filing service is available until April 18 at all four Military Veteran Resource Center locations. Those who do not bring the necessary documentation will not be able to file.
