RALEIGH — Welcoming in the new year also means ushering in a new tax filing season. It can be overwhelming, but there is good news! Starting Jan. 22, the State Employees’ Credit Union will begin the 12th year of offering tax preparation services to eligible members.
SECU tax preparers will be on hand in all 267 locations across the state to answer questions and complete and electronically file 2019 federal and state income tax returns for members who are eligible to participate in our Low-Cost Tax Preparation Program.
Qualifying members can have both federal and state tax returns prepared and filed for a flat fee of only $75. Last year, more than 70,300 members took advantage of this convenient low-cost service.
“The Low-Cost Tax Preparation Program is an important element of member service here at SECU,” said Tenesha Carter, senior vice president of Tax Preparation Services. “It gives us an opportunity to open a dialogue about financial matters, educate members and provide them with the guidance to help set and prioritize goals. We’re thrilled that thousands find this service beneficial!”
Members can visit SECU’s website at www.ncsecu.org to learn more about the Low-Cost Tax Preparation program as well as information regarding other available tax filing options.
