SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- Several Wal-Marts in Southwest Missouri will offer free tax help this year. The announcement came January 9 as tax time begins to rear its ugly head again.
Jackson Hewitt and H&R Block are teaming up with Wal-Mart to prepare 1040EZ forms for free. The 1040EZ form is generally used by single or married taxpayers who claim no dependents and who do not have anything to itemize.
Customers who have their taxes prepared at Wal-Mart can recieve a refund via direct deposit, prepaid debit card or a mailed check.
Wal-Mart on North Kansas Expressway and South Campbell Avenue in Springfield are participating in the promotion.
