H&R Block, ICIRR to Host DACA Workshop

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsPresident Obama presented the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)” for eligible undocumented youth, 15-30 years old, to apply for a protection which will allow them to temporarily stay in the country and obtain a legal work permit. H&R Block will support the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) in providing students and their families with services that are now available through a DACA workshop taking place this Saturday. Now that eligible youth have a valid Social Security Number, they can amend their returns to find extra credits they couldn’t get with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). Additionally, H&R Block will be able to inform students about possible job opportunities. The workshop will take place Saturday, Feb. 23 at Elgin Community College, 1700 Spartan Dr., at 10a.m., to 1p.m. The event is free.
