The United Way of Allegheny County and the Money In Your Pocket Coalition offer
free tax preparation and financial education services to low-to-moderate income
workers so that they can receive their full refund at tax time.
Since 2006, we have trained and mobilized hundreds of community volunteers during tax season to provide free, quality income tax preparation assistance to families earning up to than $40,000 and individuals making up to $20,000 a year.
Beyond tax season, the non-profit agencies that make up the Money In Your Pocket Coalition are able to offer clients year-round assistance in finding help when times get tough and working toward long-term financial stability.
We help our clients:
- Find affordable tax help
- Avoid check cashing and refund anticipation loan fees
- Access state and federal tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or Child Tax Credit that can put thousands of dollars into their pockets
In 2013, the Money In Your Pocket Coalition hosted eleven free tax and financial education sites in neighborhoods throughout Allegheny County.
We would like to thank our funding partners:
