EITC could benefit parish taxpayers
The Louisiana Departments of Social Service, Revenue and Labor have begun a statewide publicity campaign to raise awareness for the EITC that could enable some low-income families to own homes, improve education and increase quality of life.
"It seems thousands in the state who are eligible are not filing returns," state Sen. Hollis Downs, R-Ruston, said. "This publication says statewide $82 million was left on the table. I'm pretty sure a lot of that was in Lincoln Parish."
