  The United Way of Allegheny County, the IRS, the Money in Your Pocket Coalition and PNC Bank are hosting Family Tax Day to celebrate the IRS-designated Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day. The event will be held at the United Way's offices at 1250 Penn Avenue in the Strip District.

Volunteers from local IRS VITA sites will offer free state and federal income tax preparation services to income-eligible Allegheny County residents (families with incomes up to $40,000 and individuals with incomes up to $20,000). In addition, PNC staff will be on hand to offer taxpayers without traditional bank accounts the option of having their federal refund deposited into a very low-fee debit card account or receiving a check-cashing letter that will allow them to get their refund checks cashed for free at select PNC Bank locations.

These free services are available by appointment only. For more information, or to schedule your appointment, call 2-1-1 or 412-255-1155. Taxpayers must have all W2 forms and tax documents to make an appointment.
