OFA New Hampshire State Director Tim Arsenault Highlights New White House Tool That Will Help Granite Staters Identify More Than a Dozen Tax Benefits
Millions may be eligible for tax benefits thanks to President Obama’s Recovery Act
With taxes due in one week, Organizing for America is highlighting a White House tool designed to help Americans identify more than a dozen tax benefits they may be eligible for because of President Obama’s Recovery Act. The new tax savings calculator is available here.
Please see below for a statement from Organizing for America New Hampshire Director Tim Arsenault, on the numerous tax benefits available to New Hampshire families and businesses as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA):
“Americans are finding more and more relief through tax cuts and credits thanks to President Obama and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). With just a week left until taxes are due, it’s not too late to claim some of the almost $300 billion in tax benefits included in the Recovery Act.
“There are more than a dozen Recovery Act tax benefits that Granite Staters may be able to claim on their 2009 federal tax returns, advantages that will help families and workers pay for expenses like college tuition, a new home or car, and other investments in their future.
“This year’s average tax refund is up nearly ten percent, but many tax benefits still go unclaimed. The White House’s new tax savings tool (found at www.WhiteHouse.gov/Recovery) provides an easy way to see how these tax benefits will help their families make ends meet before the April 15th tax deadline rolls around.
“These tax benefits are a clear result of the hard work President Obama and Democratic leaders have done to get our nation back on the road to economic recovery, and we commend them for their tireless efforts.”
