Free Tax Help For Low Income Families

The United Way of South Mississippi and the Volunteer Income Tax Program are teaming up to provide free tax assistance for low income families.
The IRS has trained volunteers to assist with filing taxes a service vital to low income families who can’t afford the average $200 to $250 it costs to have your taxes prepared.
The free service is available to those who made less than $54,000 last year.Sam Evans with United Way Of South Mississippi said,“What’s great about this is it helps low income individuals who can’t really afford to pay that $200 to $250  to get their taxes done or just could use that money elsewhere and these certified volunteers are also there and they help you get every credit that you qualify for. They’ve been doing it for years a lot of the time so they really know what they’re doing.”
