Tax Time is the Perfect Time to Save
Editor's Note: this post originally appeared as part of a series for National Consumer Protection Week on ConsumerFinance.gov . Filing taxes doesn’t have to be the worst. For some, tax time can offer an opportunity to  set some money aside for goals or a rainy day. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit for low to moderate income working individuals and families . EITC can even reduce taxes and result in a refund. Last year, over 27 million consumers received nearly $62 billion in EITC. Many people who are eligible for free tax services, for example, at IRS-approved  Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) sites , pay to have their taxes prepared. Money saved by using free tax prep, added to part of a refund, could go right into a savings account or be used to pay down debt. In addition to taking advantage of free tax services, there are many other ways to save. You can save automatically by having a portion of your refund or your paycheck deposited directly to a savings account. read more
