Free Taxes Unless You Work for Walmart of Course

We are hoping this isn't one of those deals where employees are not eligible to participate.
But the Wal-Mart Foundation is teaming up with a nonprofit organization to provide free tax preparation and filing services to  low-income Bay Area residents at a Wa-Mart store in Oakland Monday. Here's hoping their own employees can use the services.

Wal-Mart and One Economy, a nonprofit that helps low-income  Americans, will be providing the service starting at 11 a.m. at the store at  8400 Edgewater Drive, according to Wal-Mart spokeswoman Amelia Neufeld.

Representatives from Wal-Mart, One Economy, United Way, and the  Internal Revenue Service will be at the store to welcome the Mobile Tax  Center van, which is funded by the Wal-Mart Foundation.

Consumers making less than $56,000 per year will be eligible to  have their taxes filed free of charge, and can learn about their potential to  qualify for Earned Income Tax Credit.

The van will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, according to  Neufeld.

The Mobile Tax Center van is part of a nationwide tour. For more  information on tour dates and locations, visit their Web site.
