Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses and let's do their taxes! Wait - I don't think that is exactly what it says on the Statue of Liberty.

But some East Texans are dressing up as Lady Liberty as part of a marketing campaign to drum up some business for a tax service.

"We probably get about sixty percent of our new business in the door because of our wavers," said Maureen Parkhill with Liberty Tax Service. "I probably have ten wavers now who rotate. I'm always looking for more."

Although Liberty has repeat customers, they have very few repeat mascots. This year, only one came back. If you think you can handle it, you might pick up a few extra bucks being a mascot.
