Real Impact of Free Tax Prep Program: Meet Richard
“Every little bit helps,” is how Richard summed up his rationale for participating in the free tax preparation through the Money in Your Pocket (MIYP) program.
Richard lives in Harrisburg and previously had family assist him with his tax preparation. After hearing about the program from a friend last year, he returned again this year to the Market Square Presbyterian Church MIYP site in Harrisburg to have his taxes prepared.
“It’s a friendly atmosphere here, they don’t make you feel pressured at all, and the process has always been pretty quick for me,” said Richard. He is expecting to get some money back this year and plans to put it in the bank for future expenses.
The MIYP campaign is a community collaboration of organizations led by United Way of the Capital Region and committed to the economic stability of local families.
