Teachers and other school employees can take advantage of a useful free service this week.

Liberty Tax Service is taking off the burden of filing taxes by offering free tax preparation help. Teachers, daycare workers, educators and all school staff are invited to bring their tax information into the Liberty Tax Service office located at  2396 Crenshaw Blvd., Suite B until the end of the week.

The owner of this location, Marcus Anderson, says employees of the educational system deserve this help and he hopes this appreciation week will show respect for everyone working in the educational system.

Liberty Tax is the fastest-growing tax preparation franchise in the country, and has prepared almost 20 million individual income tax returns in more than 4,300 offices and online.

Next week, police officers and firefighters will get the same honor.
