PEACE, Inc., KeyBank, and Beauchamp Branch Library partner for successful Super Saturday event!

On February 3, PEACE, Inc., KeyBank, and members of the CNY CA$H Coalition hosted a great Super Saturday Free Tax event at Beauchamp Branch Library, Onondaga County Public Libraries.

More than 30 staff and volunteers from the entities filed 40 tax returns in a little more than 4 hours. Thank you to all who helped! The numbers and impact are great, including:

  • 34 of the 40 filers received returns totaling $57,552!
  • The average return was $1,693.
  • The average filer was 43 years old and reported an annual income of $34,442.
  • 8 of the families were at 100% or below the Federal Poverty Level. 26 families were at 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level.
  • 10 of the filers earned Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC); 9 earned Child Tax Credits (CTC).

In a census tract where nearly 70% of youth live in poverty, a Super Saturday Event at Beauchamp Library can make a big difference!

If you missed the event, not a problem! You can schedule an appointment at our year-round Free Tax Prep Program and/or one of our partnering sites at https://www.peace-caa.org/taxes/.
