Share your VITA or EITC Story

Tell Us About Your VITA Experience and How Tax Credits Help You... When you do, you will be entered to win a $50 gift card.

  • Did you know that you can help others by telling your story?

    Michigan taxpayers like you benefit from credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and Home Heating Credit and free tax-filing services like those offered by MEIC members.

    We need your help in spreading the word about these benefits. If you are willing to share your story with us, please fill out the form below. Whether or not we use your story, you will be entered to win one of twelve $50 Meijer gift cards.

    The contest begins January 26, 2018 and runs until April 30, 2018. Drawings will be held for clients of individual MEIC Member sites, as well as at least twenty-five, statewide drawings (all entries will be entered into a local drawing first, then entered into the statewide drawings, increasing chances of winning!). Just make sure to fill out all the required information in the form below.

    While we do ask for your personal contact information, only the answers you provide to the questions on the form, your first name and first initial of your last name, city or location of free tax services will be used should we choose to publish your story. The use of other identifiable information will not be used unless you agree to allow us to do so in any follow-up communication.

    Only respond to the questions with information you feel comfortable sharing with others about any refund or tax service you received.

    Please be aware that while we will not share your personal contact information with others outside of the MEIC and CEDAM, it is necessary to correctly provide us accurate contact information so that we may contact you with any follow-up questions regarding your story, or if you are selected to win one of the gift cards.

    The selection of your story will not increase, or decrease your chances of winning. Odds of winning depend on the number of total submissions received. Only one submission per household. All submissions will be entered into the drawings, regardless of whether or not your story is chosen.

    By filling out this form, you consent to have the information you provided to use to be used in connection with your first name, first initial of your last name and city or location of free tax service.

    Please contact Ross H. Yednock if you have any questions regarding this form and/or contest at 517.485.3588 or
