(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “It’s a large chunk of change that’s coming at you all at once and you think, OK, well the quicker I can get it the better,” she said. “In the long run you’re really only hurting your finances.”

The non-profit also offers financial coaching from advisers and financial literacy classes.

Residents can either follow instructions at the Consumer Credit Counseling Service website or they can schedule a face-to-face appointment with a representative from the non-profit at its Niagara Falls offices in the Family and Children’s Services Niagara Family Center, located at 1522 Main St.

Residents can schedule appointments on Tuesdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. through the end of March.

Taxpayers must have a household income of $58,500 a year or less to qualify for the assistance.

Consumer Credit Counseling Service’s Niagara office can be reached at 299-0911 and the free tax preparation software can be accessed by visiting www.consumercreditbuffalo.org and clicking on the “myfreetaxes” button.
