Oh, Spring! Is there anything more lovely than seeing the daffodils in bloom and feeling a warm breeze on your skin after a long, harsh winter?
Of course there is. Getting a big, fat refund check. In the past, you may have spent your check so fast you don't remember what happened to it all. This year though, why not use some resources in the NC 2-1-1 database to put your return towards your financial future?
Low to No Cost Tax Assistance
First, getting to that refund (hopefully). We have many referrals for free tax filing assistance, including online programs. Remember this year, you need proof of your health insurance to file.
Make Your Tax Refund Work for You
Even if you are not expecting a return, money management programs can provide assistance for building personal wealth, improving credit scores, reducing debt and managing your financial resources more effectively. The objective of these programs is to help individuals and families become more financially stable and achieve long-term economic independence.
And remember, shoes are not a long term investment.
Tip: When viewing the list of programs on the NC 2-1-1 database, use "Refine your results" to find services nearest you.
