The website sponsored by United Way and powered by H&R Block software saves users an average of $200 in tax preparation fees. All you need is a valid email address, your adjusted gross income (AGI) from the previous year, and your income forms such as a W2, 1099, 1098, etc.

United Way’s 2018 Goals
With a new year comes resolutions, see what ours are!

Every new year brings an opportunity for reflection and renewal. Whether it’s to lose a few pounds or reconnect with old friends or get involved in the community, many of us pledge to make changes that make our lives and our communities better. As we look back on the past year, did we do the things that we resolved to do? Did it make a difference? What will we do with the year ahead?
