Good with numbers? Help us provide tax help

Share this on:

In preparation for tax season, United Way of Central New Mexico (UWCNM) is recruiting volunteers to help prepare taxes for Albuquerque and Santa Fe residents as part of Tax Help New Mexico (THNM).

Through THNM, UWCNM offers free tax preparation to families who make $56,000 per year or less, and individuals age 65 and older regardless of income.

UWCNM provides tax preparation services to help our community maximize their returns. This work saves $5.2 million dollars in tax preparation fees and $22.5 million is returned to the community in the form of refunds.

No experience is necessary, but volunteers must attend a two-day training. Volunteers will prepare taxes between Feb. 1 and April 15 and can do so at various locations where the services are offered. 

For more information and to sign up, call Jeffrey Ledbetter, Tax Help New Mexico program manager at or send an email to Jeffrey.Ledbetter@uwcnm.org
