United Way of Northeast Florida’s RealSense initiative kicked off the 2016 tax season with its 13th Annual RealSense Kickoff celebration Feb. 13. The event, which took place at The Potter’s House International Ministries, featured family fun, lunch, partner booths, speakers, giveaways, and of course, free tax preparation services. But that was only the beginning celebration of free RealSense tax-prep services currently underway across our area. More than 4,500 free tax returns have been filed so far this tax season across all RealSense Northeast Florida tax sites, not including sites in partnership with AARP.
