Volunteer Opportunities

Certified volunteers make it easy and safe for anyone using Tax Help New Mexico to file their taxes for free. 

Volunteer positions are open to qualified students in Central New Mexico (CNM). CNM students who serve as volunteer tax preparers gain valuable work experience. Volunteers will earn college credit for their volunteer work while also learning about the value of serving their community. Students will gain the necessary knowledge to become certified Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax preparers, a designation that many employers look for when hiring. 

For more information on how to become a Tax Help New Mexico volunteer, please contact Jeffrey.Ledbetter@uwcnm.org.
