Grant to help pay for tax preparation

The United Way of Pasco County has received a $8,625 grant from Wachovia-Wells Fargo. The grant recognizes the success of the United Way's Prosperity Campaign, which offers free income tax preparation to help lower income residents obtain refunds. Last year, about 120 volunteers helped file 6,506 tax returns for Pasco residents, who received more than $1.2 million in Earned Income Tax Credits and over $6 million in total refunds. The grant funds from Wachovia-Wells Fargo will be used for marketing, supplies and other costs associated with the program. The volunteers, who have been trained and certified by the IRS, will prepare taxes by appointment from mid January to April 15. To schedule an appointment, call the United Way help line at 211.
