We’re encouraging residents to “check off” for the United Way Fund on their Michigan tax returns.  Form 4642 on the 2012 income tax return will allow people to donate all or part of their 2012 Michigan tax refund to the United Way Fund, a fund created to help Michigan’s families in need.  These funds help to provide food, clothing and shelter for Michigan’s low to moderate income families.

“The United Way Check-off program is a quick and easy way to make a big impact on the lives of those struggling right here in our community,” stated Ann Fillmore, Executive Director of United Way of Midland County.

All donations made to the United Way Fund will be used to help support local families. Donations made by taxpayers in Midland County will automatically come to our community to help our neighbors in need. The address and zip code on your return will determine the county that receives funding, so you simply need to check the box on the form.

This year, please consider “checking off” for the United Way Fund. Giving has never been so easy. For more information, call United Way at 989-631-3670 or visit www.liveunitedmidland.org.
