MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Amid the coronavirus outbreak in the Mid-South, United Way has arranged a way for people to get help with their taxes - without leaving their car.

Starting March 24, everyone who qualifies for Free Tax Prep with an individual or family income of $54,000 or less in 2019 can file their taxes using a low-risk drive-thru, drop-off service.

Although the tax filing deadline has been moved to July 15, everyone should still be preparing to file - if they haven’t already.

According to the United Way, this low-risk alternative will minimize face to face tax preparation.

Filers should bring the proper documents and identification needed for tax prepping. Call 2-1-1 for a full list of required documents. No appointments will be needed.

More than 6,000 filers have used United Way’s Free Tax Program. They’re anticipating more than $11 million in refunds.
