Notre Dame College once again is helping eligible families and individuals receive up to $6,600 or more in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
For the 14th year, Notre Dame accounting students are learning experientially by providing free tax filing services on campus beginning Saturday, February 4, through Saturday, April 15, in Regina Hall Room 216. Each year the volunteers file income tax forms for about 600 clients.
The center is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Enter campus at or take public transportation to 1857 S. Green Road. Parking is free.
The College site is closed for Notre Dame’s Spring Break from Saturday, March 4, through Sunday, March 12, and for the College’s Easter Break Thursday, April 6, through Monday, April 10.
Notre Dame provides the annual service in partnership with the Cuyahoga EITC Coalition free for low-income residents of Cuyahoga County who qualify. All volunteer preparers have been certified through the Internal Revenue Service.
Volunteers provide the same kind of professional service clients would expect from any other accountant. In addition to the services being free, the students work to maximize refunds for working individuals and families. Students may also earn internship credit.
For the first time, the center may offer virtual appointments this year.
Appointments can be scheduled via RefundOhio.org. Walk-ins are welcome. Clients with appointments are served first.
Translation services are available in Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese and Arabic.
Cuyahoga EITC Coalition has filed income taxes for more than 170,000 individuals and families and secured more than $16 million in refunds since its inception in 2005. Notre Dame has participated 14 of those 17 years. The clinic was not offered in 2020 due to COVID.
To schedule an appointment, visit RefundOhio.org or call 2-1-1.
