It was super tax Saturday this weekend.The one day event at the Airport Mall is put on my United Way of Eastern Maine.It’s a free tax prep service for low to moderate income individuals.The service is offered through a financial stability partnership.Several organizations have volunteers that are trained and IRS certified to help folks file their taxes.Director of Communications for United Way of Eastern Maine, Emma Pope-Welch says they had about 100 people at Saturday’s event, which is up from last year.She says it’s important to offer this for the local community.”We have a lot of low to moderate income individuals in our area and it’s really important to have that extra money at this time of year when some of the expenses have to do with medical or fuel costs. It’s a really important time of year to have that extra.”If you missed Saturday’s event you can call 211 and find another tax site near you that offers the service.
