United Way — Live United
For many in our community, tax season can be a stressful time. The forms feel complicated and the language full of jargon. That’s why we partner with AARP Tax Aide and MyFreeTaxes to bring free tax preparation support to low- to moderate-income households, absolutely free. This week tax preparation sites around the county have begun the complicated work of helping people file their state and federal taxes.
Recently Oregon has been gaining national attention for our low rate of households claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit. Help us change the narrative and spread the word about both the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. You can learn more on our website and download materials from our dropbox to share with your family, friends, clients and colleagues.
We want to extend an extra special thank you to our volunteer tax preparers who work tirelessly during this season to ensure that people can get high quality tax assistance free of charge. Thank you, AARP Tax Aide, for all your work!
