Liberty Tax Service Offers an Online Economic Stimulus Calculator 
How much will taxpayers benefit from the plan?

(Virginia Beach, VA)  Now that the 787 billion dollar economic stimulus package is a reality, tax relief and tax changes are taking effect for 95% of the U.S. population.  Yet, an online poll conducted by Liberty Tax Service has determined that 75% of the respondents are not sure how the new economic stimulus plan will affect them. In response to these findings, Liberty Tax has created an online calculator to help taxpayers determine how the plan will impact their taxes.

“Liberty Tax now has an easy-to-use online economic stimulus calculator that can quickly determine exactly what new tax measures each individual taxpayer can take advantage of.  It will compute an estimated tax savings figure,” said John Hewitt, CEO and Founder of Liberty Tax Service.

The calculator is on the homepage of the Liberty Tax public website, www.libertytax.com.  There are tax breaks targeted to help the unemployed, retirees, and families.  First-time home buyers may benefit, as well as people buying new vehicles or motorcycles and those pursuing higher education.
