More than 4,000 tax returns completed by volunteers

Each year United Way 2-1-1 teams with local organizations that provide free tax preparation services.

This year we teamed with six partners in five counties. Those partners included: Linn County AARP; Linn County VITA; ISU Extension in Iowa County; Black Hawk County VITA; Washington County VITA and Jones County RSVP.

Those partners completed 4,180 returns. Clients who had their tax returns completed by one of the partners received $7,012,447 in federal returns. About 32% of those tax payers were eligible for Earned Income Tax Credits which totaled $1,765,544.
