BECKLEY – You may have seen it rolling through town today, a giant bank on wheels. It was in Raleigh County Tuesday helping folks with taxes.

The BB&T bus made its stop in Beckley today and locals were enjoying the chance to get free help with tax returns.

Along with Southern EITC and Mountain Heart Services, BB&T offers assistance to low and middle income families with their 40-foot bank bus.

The bus is equipped with a computer bay and satellites, and staffed with a host of tax professionals.

BB&T spokeswoman Marlo Long says this is an important thing for the community to take advantage of.

“So many people struggle to make ends meet. Having a good tax refund and being able to save on the tax preparation fees is a wonderful service to be able to offer.”

The bus is based out of Charlotte, NC and it will head north to Charleston Wednesday.
