Tax-A-Thon 2019

United Way Suncoast is pleased to announce our 2019 Tax-a-thon! In addition to preparing tax returns, this will be an all-around Financial Stability Event.

We will also promote youth financial literacy with a space to keep children entertained while parents have their taxes done, The Kids Corner. United Way Suncoast partners will provide services such as opening banks accounts, credit counselors providing scores, community resources such as Low Income Taxpayers Clinic, and partners from the Economic Prosperity Center.
