Some people are struggling to put food on the table, and now they are hit with a big tax bill from Uncle Sam. The Partnership to End Poverty, a Central Oregon non-profit group, helps a lot of low income people with their taxes. The problem they're seeing this year is that some families are not getting back as much money because a stimulus incentive is gone and others owe because they didn't withhold enough out of their unemployment checks. “I have a family that has owed early year and he cannot even file his Oregon returns until he has paid off past taxes or they'll go to the credit bureaus and they'll start trying to claim and docking pay which he doesn't even have." Sara Holtzclaw with the Partnership says she's seen some people owe as much as a lump sum of $1000 each year; which is a lot when you're struggling just to feed your family.
