Free Tax Preparation for Working Families
Low- to moderate-income working families in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry counties can receive free tax preparation services January 29 - April 17 through the Money in Your Pocket Campaign (MIYP).
The Money in Your Pocket (MIYP) campaign is a community collaboration of organizations lead by United Way of the Capital Region that is committed to the economic stability of local families. The program aims to increase use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).
Volunteers prepare computerized, electronic returns through the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Tax Income Assistance (VITA) program, which is designed to provide low- to moderate-income working families with help completing federal and state returns, and obtaining credits for which they are eligible.
