MIYP Tax Site Open

As another tax preparation season returns, we are proud to announce our return as a tax prep site for the Money In Your Pocket (MIYP) Program. Our main office at 1514 Derry Street will serve be open for the MIYP program on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm to 8:30pm.
 
The MIYP campaign is a community collaboration of organizations lead 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.
