Tax season is here and the state's legislators have some good news for those who qualify. It's called the Earned Income Tax Credit, and it's one of the federal government's largest cash assistance programs for low-income working Americans. Workers who earned under $53,000 or less  may be eligible for the program, in which they can claim as much as $6,000. 

Officials held a press conference Friday, urging eligible residents to apply for this credit when filing their tax returns. The IRS estimates that one in five qualified Americans don't file for this benefit, leaving millions of dollars unclaimed. 

Officials also highlighted the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, known as VITA, helping low income workers and seniors prepare their taxes for free. AARP is also working with VITA to provide tax help. 

Read below for a list of Vita sites in Stamford. For more information on the Earned Income Tax Credit and Vita locations in your area, visit IRS.gov
