Money in Your Pocket Tax Preparation Program

Money in Your Pocket (MIYP) is a community partnership 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 provides low- to moderate-income working families with help completing federal and state returns, and obtaining credits for which they are eligible. The program is available January through April.

For tax year 2022, 235 volunteers filed 3,810 tax returns, resulting in more than $3.66 million returned to local families.
