Mayor Francis Slay is encouraging more St. Louisans to file income tax returns this year. Filing a return may allow traditional non-filers - residents with very low incomes and senior citizens - to participate in the federal Economic Stimulus Payment program. The program will infuse about $152 billion into the U.S. economy and $1.2 billion into the local economy.
To help residents prepare their filings and help determine if they are qualified for the economic stimulus payment, Gateway Earned Income Credit Community Coalition (GECC) will hold a Super Saturday Information Day at MET Center, 6347 Plymouth, and at Five Star Senior Center, 2832 Arsenal, on Saturday, March 29, from 9 am until 1 pm.
Area residents who will not be available on March 29th should call the United Way assistance line, 211, to obtain the names and locations of other partnering agencies.
