Radio PSA text script EITC "The List"

WOMAN: If I  had some extra cash I’d stock up the fridge.  Pay down the bills.  Oh, buy some new work clothes.

ANNCR:  Oh! The things you could do with some extra money, right? Well, if you didn’t make a lot last year, maybe you have some waiting for you at the IRS.

WOMAN:  You’re kidding, right?

ANNCR:  With the Earned Income Tax Credit, some working people get extra back when they file their taxes and claim the credit. See if you qualify at www.irs.gov/eitc.

WOMAN: Tune up the car. Go to night school. Fix these broken glasses.

ANNCR: I think they get it.

WOMAN: Start a vegetable garden.

ANNCR: You can stop now.

WOMAN: I’d fix my computer. I’d upgrade it.
