SECU to begin assisting members with tax preparation needs January 22nd!

RALEIGH, NC (January 11, 2018) — One of the many benefits of membership at State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) is having access to convenient and affordable services, including a tax preparation program.  Starting January 22, 2018, the Credit Union will begin another season of assisting eligible members with their tax preparation needs.

SECU tax preparers in all 262 Credit Union branches statewide will be available to help complete and electronically file 2017 federal and North Carolina income tax returns for qualifying members participating in SECU’s Low-Cost Tax Preparation program.  Last year, SECU tax preparers filed over 16,200 member tax returns!

Launched in 2010, the Credit Union’s low-cost program has continued to grow and includes a healthy following of members who benefit from the local service for a flat fee of just $75.  The fee covers the cost to prepare and file the North Carolina and federal tax returns.  This cost is generally much lower than other service providers in the marketplace!

“Members appreciate having access to affordable tax preparation services and working with hometown folks they know and trust to handle their financial matters,” said Tenesha Carter, SECU’s Senior Vice President of Tax Preparation Services.  “SECU’s program demonstrates our commitment to providing a low-cost service that provides value to our members.  We are pleased that thousands of members find the service convenient and beneficial and we look forward to helping even more members this upcoming tax season!”
