Tax time can be a stressful time, especially if you are desperately seeking a refund. The Legal Services of North Florida is offering free tax preparation to low-income citizens.
Staff attorney Tara Rosenblum says often times people fall prey to services offering "refund anticipation loans" at high interest rates.
Rosenblum says, "There's really no reason for those people who need the refund the most to pay $100 to $200 just to get it earlier, so we're happy to be able to offer this service for them to be able to get those refunds for free."
Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., LSNF will offer free tax preparation to low income tax payers, typically those with a gross income of $40,000 or less.
