In addition to medical experts, the Jackson Medical Mall was packed with tax preparers Friday.
Lots of individuals were able to have their tax returns filed for free. The United Way, Entergy and the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation teamed up for the "Keep the Change Fair."
The event gave working families and individuals who made no more than $50,000 in 2011 an opportunity to have their taxes filed free of charge. Patricia Herndon said the money she doesn't have to spend on filing taxes, goes into a rainy day fund.
"Well you can always put that money aside for emergency's, recently I had a wreck and I had to come up with a large deductible, someone hit me and they didn't have insurance, so putting that aside helps me for emergency situations," said Herndon.
The "Save the Change" fair goes on at the Jackson Medical Mall until 2PM Friday. However, if you aren't able to make the fair, you can still receive help. Tax experts will be on hand Saturday, January 27th from 10AM to 2PM at the Mississippi Children's Museum to file taxes for free. Tax experts will also be available free of charge all throughout tax season. For more information call 211.
