FREE Tax Preparation Benefits Area Seniors
William and Nancy from West Hanover Township have been married for 60 years and are retired. They first heard about the Money in Your Pocket (MIYP) program from their son and have been using the free service now for several years.
“We used to pay to have our taxes prepared,” explained William, “and that money would come out of our refund. Now, we get quality preparation at no cost. We get to keep our entire refund, which is important when you are retired.”
William’s wife Nancy added that she would recommend the program to other seniors, “This location (at First Christian Church of Lemoyne) is very convenient for us. We appreciate being able to call to schedule an appointment and having the one-on-one attention from a trained tax preparer.” As she pointed out, “What’s not to love about a program that saves you money?”
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.
