Roseburg organization offers free tax prep help

    ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A non-profit in Douglas County is helping people file their taxes at no cost.

    NeighborWorks Umpqua is offering free tax preparation and filing services.

    People can schedule an appointment with a volunteer, use self-filing stations, or drop-off their taxes.

    Organizers hope this will help increase one important tax credit.

    "Earned income tax credit--the EITC. According to the Senate Majority Office, Oregon, only 74 percent of the state participates in the program," said NeighborWorks Umpqua's Nick Noyes.

    Noyes says that's 6 percent lower than the national average.

    The tax preparation sites in Roseburg and Coos Bay are open through April 13.
