The United Way Southwestern PA is seeking volunteers for Money In Your Pocket. Through this program community volunteers provide free tax help for low-income families alongside trusted nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and United Ways. Many of the taxpayers served depend upon tax credits from their refunds to pay for basic needs, including rent, utilities, groceries, or transportation to and from work. You will make a difference.
Last year, 326 volunteers helped to prepare nearly 10,000 tax returns and delivered $15.6 million in refunds to Southwestern PA residents, including $6.4 million in Earned Income Tax Credits.
This tax season they are hosting 17 free tax sites in Allegheny County.
