McHENRY – Liberty Tax Service, 5017 W. Elm St., McHenry, will offer free tax preparation services to specific groups in March.

Police, firefighters, nurses, seniors and nonprofit employees who haven’t used Liberty Tax Service in the past are eligible during specific weeks of the month.

The tax office will offer free tax preparation for police, firefighters and EMTs March 3-9. Nurses, medical technicians and hospital employees can get the same service March 10-16. Senior citizens will be offered free services March 17-23. Then, from March 24-30, the tax office will waive tax preparation fees for charitable volunteers and nonprofit employees. 

The free services will only be offered to individuals from each group who are first-time customers and during the specific week the promotion is offered for that group. The free preparation applies only to individual tax returns, not business or corporate returns.

“This is a great way for Liberty Tax to honor those individuals whose tireless contributions make McHenry County the vibrant and growing county it is today,” said Eric Mason, owner of Liberty Tax Service in McHenry.  “We want to take the stress of tax preparation off of peoples’ minds.”

For information, call the McHenry office at 815-344-6786.
