Each year KeyBank partners with local organizations to provide free tax preparation services for low- to moderate-income earners. Our free services also help these workers apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit, so they can improve their Financial Wellness.

For the last 13 years, KeyBank has been helping those in need with tax preparation services. Our service not only provides free tax preparation, but we also go a step further by helping workers apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a benefit thousands of Americans don’t even realize they qualify for, leaving the much-needed refunds unclaimed. The EITC is a refundable tax credit for low- to moderate-income individuals and families with eligible children who do not earn enough to file a tax return.

In 2017, KeyBank assisted with the preparation of 802 filings which resulted in a total of $1,718,252 in refunds, with more than half coming from EITC filings. Our tax preparation services are now available in 13 metropolitan areas across the U.S.

Filing an income tax return can be confusing for some taxpayers and expensive for those who want it done by a professional. Super Refund Saturday is our way of giving professional help to those who can benefit most from a refund. Help is especially needed with the EITC because many people don't know they’re eligible for it and don't claim it.
