Liberty Tax Service is extending its operating hours for those trying to get their taxes done under the gun.
Starting Friday, the local office, 705 W. Rose St., will operate 6 a.m.-midnight. Those hours will stand Monday as well. Over the weekend, the office will run 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday, said owner Sharon Dodgin.
“This tax season has seen a multitude of delays,” Dodgin said in a prepared statement. “Every minute counts when you’re trying to comply with the tax filing deadline.”
She said e-filing is likely the best option for most at this point.
In another effort during the wrap-up of tax season, Liberty Tax is also promoting several causes. As a sponsor of the Muscular Dystrophy Association the organization is offering to deduct $2.50 off tax prep fees up to $100 for every $1 donated to the organization.
The office also encourages donations of used cell phones to be recycled in exchange for calling cards for overseas soldiers.
