Earned Income Tax Credit Update

In collaboration with Midland College and Casa de Amigos, United Way of Midland helped to provide free tax preparation for 337 families and individuals, and receive their hard-earned tax returns.  More than $480,000 tax dollars were put back into the community, $164,799.00 of which were Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC). The EITC is a vital federal tax program that encourages and rewards work, and reduces poverty.  We invite you to join United Way in educating members of Congress about the effectiveness of this program, and the need to expand it for even more hard working Americans.
