MYFREETAXES – TAX ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Tax season is a time of year that few look forward to, but when you’re struggling to make ends meet, it can prove all the more complicated to find the information and resources you need.

The truth is, tax preparation done right can result in valuable tax credits, like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), for low-income workers that make all the difference in an annual budget. That’s why United Way makes it easy for eligible individuals to get the help they need through the Philly MyFreeTaxes program.

Through the program, trained volunteers including partners supported by the Impact Fund, assist with tax preparation and ensure that each individual obtains the full refund available. And that can be the difference between barely making ends meet, to having some financial leg room.

Five million people, half of them children, are lifted out of poverty each year due to the EITC alone.
