Skowhegan Savings Bank will be sponsoring the tax site this year, on the first floor of the Roberts Learning Center, Room 103, at the University of Maine at Farmington (224 Main Street). The Franklin County site has the lowest rejection rate in the entire state.

  1. This is a very nice offering. There are plenty of people out there whose budgets may be stretched to the limits. Finding the extra cash to pay for tax services may be a struggle. If you are one of these people, you should take advantage of this free tax service.
