Free Tax Preparation for Working Families

Money in Your Pocket Tax Preparation

Low- to moderate-income working families and individuals can receive free tax preparation services January 27 – April 15 at sites in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry counties.

A community collaboration of organizations committed to the economic stability of local families, MIYP aims to increase use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and the Child Tax Credit (CTC). The EITC is a tax refund offered by the federal government to supplement wages for low-income workers.

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

 

Tax Preparation Sites

Volunteers will prepare computerized, electronic returns through the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Tax Income Assistance (VITA) program. Individuals and people who earned $56,000 or less last year may be eligible for the service. MIYP operates 14 sites throughout Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties.
