Photo: Ms. Liberty and the Beginning of Tax Season

We caught up with Catherine Spain (AKA Ms. Liberty) outside Liberty Tax Service in Fairfax Station.

Tax season officially begins on Jan. 30. Are you ready? 

Patch recently caught up with Catherine Spain, 18, of Fairfax, who stood for hours at a corner of the Fairfax Station Square Shopping Center along Ox Road with a sign for Liberty Tax Service

"I'll be here until April," said Spain, who said she seldom gets cold while working her four-hour shifts. "You just layer and you're fine. It's a job like any other job. You just stand around and listen to music and get paid for it."  

And how long will it take for you to get a return after you file your taxes?

Last year, the IRS issued more than nine out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days, and it expects the same results in 2013, according to IRS.gov
