Moira's Message: Tax Prep Still Available

2020 Tax Site with distancing

Dear United Way friends,

One of the vital services we provide at United Way of Greater Cincinnati is our Free Tax Preparation Program. Each year, approximately 500 IRS-certified volunteers help file taxes for low-income Greater Cincinnati residents.

As you can imagine, this has been a year like no other. Still, we assisted more than 8,000 individuals and families with preparing and filing their tax returns. Ultimately, the work of our volunteers yielded more than $12 million in refunds to individuals and families in our community and saved taxpayers over $2.2 million in filing fees.

But we know, during these unusual times, many missed the July 15 deadline. If you need help preparing and filing your 2019 return, please visit one of our tax sites and an IRS-certified tax volunteer will prepare and e-file your return for free. We have sites in both Hamilton and Cincinnati.

We also will help with virtual filing or help you file yourself. Or, we will provide information about applying for an Installment Agreement Payment Plan with the IRS. Everything you need to know can be found here.

I am extremely grateful to the volunteers who make this program possible. It is just one more example of United being the way we help our community.
