Auburn students help families

Auburn University students recently spent six weeks in Auburn and Montgomery helping to provide free income tax preparation services to families.

They did this through SaveFirst, a tax preparation and financial literacy initiative of Impact Alabama.

This service is designed to assist families eligible for the Earned Icome Tax Credit, those families that make less than $40,000 a year with children in the home or $20,000 a year without children in the home.

Auburn students worked at sites that prepared more than 330 tax returns.
