United Way offering free, last minute tax help

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The final hours to file taxes are ticking away. 

For those who still have yet to file, there is still help available.  The United Way is one of those places.

They are offering free tax preparation help, yes free, no strings attached – no hidden fees or charges.  This is all part of the United Way's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, the largest tax preparer in Arizona.

They help out families earning $51,000 or less.  

If you are among the procrastinators out there, you are not alone.  Studies show more Americans are waiting to file last minute.  Through early April about 4.5 million fewer returns had been filed than last year. 

That is why places like United Way are ready to help. There is no appointment necessary, and the United Way office is open from 10 a.m. to midnight.
