Wal-Mart's Everyday FREE Prices: Free Tax Prep
BENTONVILLE, Ark., February 10, 2009 – The Wal-Mart Foundation today announced its commitment to bring free tax preparation and filing services to eligible taxpayers nationwide. Working with United Way and One Economy Corporation, a non-profit organization that helps low-income Americans enter the economic mainstream, the Foundation’s $3.6 million grant will launch the first-ever free mobile tax filing tour funded by a national retailer and fund more than 90 United Way-supported Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) campaigns.
Mobile Tax Center vans equipped with One Economy’s online tax filing technology and IRS-certified tax professionals will set-up in Walmart parking lots or at the offices of One Economy’s community partners for two to three weeks at a time between February 10 and April 11. Individuals earning less than $56,000 per year will be able to visit the vans and file their taxes free of charge. Visit www.myfreetaxes.com for van locations.
