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. Veterans will need to bring a photo ID, their DD-214 (or other evidence of military service), and their income tax records.
The Ohio Benefit Bank is a program of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. Through this program, MVRC can also help veterans apply for education benefits and health coverage, and help their families access food, healthcare, childcare and home energy assistance.
Military Veterans Resource Center helps veterans develop self-reliance and independence by providing access to the resources they need to successfully manage life transitions. MVRC is based in Columbus and operates five centers throughout Ohio.
