With Tax Day fast approaching, there's a free tax preparation for those who qualify in East Texas.

Goodwill of East Texas is providing the service for those who make $54,000 a year or less.
 

After 33 days, they've already helped file over 450 returns for East Texans who have received over $900,000 back in returns, about $415,000 of that in earned income tax credit.
 

Earned income tax credit is a credit for low to moderate income working people or couples that depends on a recipient's income and number of children.

Goodwill said even those who think they don't need to file should come in and they'll be able to possibly get some money back.

"Even if you don't believe you've made enough money to file your income taxes, go ahead and come in because you're more than likely going to get what you paid in back in addition to possibly some extra earned credit for your refund,” said Kristy Bice, the Senior Director of People Services.

The tax service will be available at three different locations in Lufkin, Diboll, and Crockett through the last day to file, which is April 18. this year.
