Mercer CASH continues to be a recognized campaign for helping families and individuals prepare their taxes. Last tax year, each household received a 2012 TY EITC refund over $5,700 per household; a powerful tool that helps to increase the economic security and financial self-sufficiency of low-income families. Last year the total of all EITC filers brought over 47 million EITC dollars into Mercer County.
