Tax Help New Mexico Program Returns To WNMU

Silver City, NM – Tax season has arrived and with it comes Tax Help New Mexico.

Western New Mexico has offered the program in partnership with the state for 30 years as a free service to low income filers.

Students work as volunteers at the WNMU site, one of the states’ 48 locations. All students are accounting or business majors that can also use their experience as a three-credit course. Student volunteers are required to pass an exam testing their knowledge of tax preparation prior to working for Tax Help.

The free service is available for people with annual family incomes of $51,000 or less, with an exception for people who earn more than that due to Social Security income.

To have a tax return prepared, individuals must have an original Social Security card, a picture ID, W-2s from all employers and a bank account with routingnumber for direct deposit.

Housed in Light Hall Room 106B on the WNMU campus, tax preparation is offered Monday through Friday. The service will be unavailable during Spring Break, March 10 through 14.

Mondays: 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Fridays: 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
