It’s tax time, and the question on everyone’s mind as they fill out their income taxes is, “Am I keeping as much money in my pocket as possible?” A new United Way survey shows that a number of working Americans don’t realize the tax credits they’ve earned. And 70 percent are unaware they qualify for free tax preparation services.
As U.S. President of United Way Worldwide, Stacey Stewart drives the strategic direction for United Way in the U.S., working with leaders throughout the United Way network to drive community impact in the areas of education, income and health – the building blocks for a good quality of life.
In today’s society, business isn’t treated the way it’s supposed to at a younger level. Students aren’t forced to take classes that teach those how to pay taxes, handle them and utilize their financial strengths. When tax time approaches, there are those that can become lost in the shuffle.
Stewart and United Way Worldwide are on a mission to help those that need assistance with their taxes. It’s a sense of business that is necessary in the world today. Stewart sat down with TheRichest to discuss those plans and how to help others, especially when doing taxes this time of year.
