Week 23: Sign up to help low-income people access tax relief

Help Low-Income Households Keep More of What They EarnYou can help keep struggling families from being taxed into poverty. Volunteer at one of our Free Tax Prep program sites!

For 15 years, our tax sites have helped thousands of low-income households in Allegheny County to maximize their tax refund without paying any hefty prep fees from commercial agencies. In 2017, Just Harvest’s free tax return preparation program put more than $6 million dollars back into the pockets of nearly 3,000 working people in Allegheny County.

Having this program reach as many people as possible is more important than ever. Republican leaders in D.C. are about to try to pass “tax reform” that could lock in this country’s wealth inequality. Those at the bottom will stay stuck at the bottom if tax relief gets even harder to come by.

Whatever happens nationally, your participation in our free tax filing program will help. Our volunteers ensure that low-income people in Allegheny County can access existing tax credits and keep as much of their hard-earned dollars as possible.

This free program literally can’t happen without folks like you.
