WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) - As it has for the past three years, Mountain America Credit Union is once again offering lower-cost tax services to the public for the 2016 tax season.

Because Mountain America is a not-for-profit organization that operates under the larger "people helping people" credit union ethos, local branches are able to provide reasonably priced tax services to the community.

Fees can be up to 30% cheaper than most retail tax preparation firms; Mountain America also offers no-obligation consultations. No appointment is necessary, a drop-off option is available, and free e-filing is offered with preparation of a return.

"April 15 may seem far away, but we're ready to help our members today. Our mission is to improve the lives of those we work with, and offering tax help is just one way in which we do that," says Chris Hatch, tax preparation manager.
