Many tax agencies offer online services for filing

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- It's that time of year again, tax season and many people are choosing a non-traditional route to file.

In fact, many tax services such as Liberty Tax, are keeping up to day by offering free services online. These services allows them to compete with other agencies, including the popular one, Turbo tax.  Tax expert, Nancy Conter,  says like any company they are out to make a profit and that means staying ahead of technology. For many that means filing their taxes online.

"They've been trained on them, they know them, they can sit in the comfort of their own homes, file their tax return. What better option do you have? You don't have to worry about going to see someone," said Conter.

Conter says if you choose to file your taxes online you can always call one of the local offices for help. The deadline to file your taxes is April 18th.
