United Way of Pasco seeks those who didn't file tax returns in 2007


Didn't file '07 return? $1.1B in refunds awaits

The United Way of Pasco County is looking for anyone who may not have filed their 2007 income tax return. Tax refunds totaling more than $1.1 billion may be waiting for more than a million people who did not file in 2007, the Internal Revenue Service announced recently. However, to collect the money, a return for 2007 must be filed with the IRS no later than April 18. The IRS estimates that half of these potential 2007 refunds are $640 or more. Some people may not have filed because they had too little income to require filing a tax return, even though they had taxes withheld from their wages or made quarterly estimated payments. United Way of Pasco County, in partnership with the IRS, offers free income tax preparation throughout Pasco County. All taxes are prepared by appointment by IRS trained and certified volunteers. To schedule a tax appointment dial 211. For information about the income tax preparation sites, call the United Way at (727) 835-2028.
