Liberty Tax Service Holds March of Dimes “Free Tax Prep” Fundraisers Nationally March 27th 

(Virginia Beach, VA)  Liberty Tax Service will waive tax preparation fees for anyone who contributes a minimum of $50 to the March of Dimes on Friday, March 27th.    This day of free tax preparation to benefit the March of Dimes will take place at participating locations nationwide from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.  As a National Sponsor of the March of Dimes, Liberty Tax has been devoting a major portion of the 2009 tax year to fundraisers and volunteerism on behalf of the March of Dimes. 

“Liberty Tax Service employees are excited about all the ways we’re generating support for March of Dimes programs that benefit moms and babies in their communities,” said John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service.  “Last year we helped to raise nearly three quarters of a million dollars to support March for Babies and all the research and programs it funds for healthy babies.  This year we are working to do even better.”

In its first year as a National Sponsor, Liberty Tax was ranked the #15 top fundraiser of more than 20,000 corporate March for Babies teams.  Liberty Tax is organizing teams for the upcoming March for Babies events taking place across the country.  The company also offers Lady Liberty teddy bears for sale to benefit the March of Dimes in many participating U.S. offices.
