Liberty Tax Offers a Lifetime of Free Tax Preparation to Yankee Fan  


(Virginia Beach, VA) When Yankee fan Christian Lopez returned Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit ball back to the team, he probably wasn’t thinking about the tax value of presents the Yankees showered on him. To keep Lopez from striking out with taxes owed, Liberty Tax Service is offering him free tax preparation and advice, not just this year, but for life. The tax value of the luxury seats and memorabilia could be $50,000, imposing a hefty tax liability on a young man struggling to pay off student loans.  

“One good deed deserves another,” commented John Hewitt, a lifetime Yankee fan. “We’ll scrutinize this situation to arrive at the best tax scenario for Christian.”
