The Financial Resources People Need
Tax Help New Mexico is a free tax-filing resource for older residents or those making under $56,000 per year. Persons of all ages and income can also file for free at MyFreeTaxes.com.
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.
