Cristina Cave is the community relations manager for BakerRipley and she's back to talk about FREE tax preparation services. They've helped over 320,000 households with this awesome program. People qualify if they declare less than $58,000 in yearly income and they'll get top-quality, professional tax preparation advice from certified tax preparers. Cristina also cautions against signing loans against future refunds. Those go from downright dishonest to pretty shady. These loans often "kill you with fees" and it's best to avoid them. Go to www.freetaxcenters.org. Remember that they speak your language! They will find an interpreter so anyone can get help.
