Each year, more than $2.2 billion in tax credits and work support programs go unclaimed by Ohioans. Nearly 95 percent of those dollars are federal funds and must be returned for re-allocation to other states or programs. United Way Services of Geauga County, in conjunction with the Ohio Benefit Bank, wants to assist residents in claiming the credits that are available to them. These dollars help to stabilize and support working families.
United Way is providing FREE tax preparation to Geauga County residents who have incomes under $60,000. This service is not available for those with Schedule C, rental, real estate, farm, or capital gain income. Volunteers will assist residents at several different locations throughout the county in February and March. Please call 211 to make an appointment.
In addition to United Way Services of Geauga County, this program is sponsored by Geauga County Commissioners, Ohio State University Extension, and Geauga Job and Family Services.
