    Two things are certain in life; death and taxes.

    There’s no system in place to help cover the cost of taxes for those who may not be able to afford them, but taxes do help a bit in covering the costs associated with death for some in the community.

    Each year, Taylor County Fiscal Court provides money to funeral homes for when a family can’t afford funeral services.

    Regardless, when a person’s loved ones have trouble coming up with the money, most of the help will usually come from their family and friends.
