Working American’s making $64,000 or less are leaving money on the table every year during tax season. Many are unaware that they qualify for free tax preparation through United Way’s MyFreeTaxes program.
“Only four in ten surveyed were aware of the Child Tax Credit (CTC),” shared a United Way official. “Fewer than six in ten know about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and nearly 20% were not aware of any tax credits.”
MyFreeTaxes is a free, safe, and easy way for anyone earning $64,000 or less to file their state and federal taxes.
Tax refunds help working Americans pay for everyday needs like food, housing and utilities along with providing a way to save for the future.
Tax Aid Program
United Way also funds a tax assistance program at the Midland Community Center. They partner with AARP volunteers who provide on-site tax preparation for moderate- to low-income seniors and low-income individuals.
Services will be offered on Thursdays and Fridays from February 2 through April 14. Free face-to-face tax preparation is provided in the Barstow Shipps Wing of the Midland Community Center from 8:30am until 3pm, and a Thursday evening session is available as well.
To make an appointment, call the Greater Midland Community Center (989) 832-7937, then press 6. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
