Tax experts help procrastinators ahead of deadline

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) - The United Way is helping eligible Lancaster County residents file their taxes on time and for free. 

The Vita Program is open to individuals or families that earned less than $62,000 in 2017. 

Federal and state taxes are filed on the spot, and local taxes are prepared and printed so they can be mailed. 

"Hopefully we'll serve over a hundred people in this 28-hour period. Countywide, our goal is to serve 10,000 people this tax season," said Ezra Rothman with the United Way of Lancaster County 

There are three locations in Lancaster County open to help.

- 630 Janet Avenue, Lancaster: Open until 1 p.m. Tuesday

- 601 S. Queen Street, Lancaster: Open 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. Tuesday

- 560 S. Reading Road, Ephrata: Open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday
