Money in Your Pocket

The Money in Your Pocket (MIYP) campaign is a community collaboration of organizations led by United Way of the Capital Region that is committed to the economic stability of local families. The program aims to increase use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC). 

Volunteers prepare computerized, electronic returns through the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Tax Income Assistance (VITA) program, which is designed to provide low- to moderate-income working families with help completing federal and state returns, and obtaining credits for which they are eligible.

The Money in Your Pocket program is funded by the U.S. Department of Treasury, Internal Revenue Service, and PNC Bank.

MIYP Results

For tax year 2018, 272 volunteers filed 4,642 tax returns, resulting in more than $4.66 million returned to local families.
