SISD Career and Technical Education students to assist community members with free income tax preparations

Career and Technical Education students in the Socorro Independent School District, through a partnership with GECU Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), are offering free tax preparation services to the SISD community Feb. 16 through April 14 at Americas, Socorro, Pebble Hills, Montwood, Eastlake, and Mission Early College high schools.

The high school students are enrolled in various CTE courses in business and financial fields. The students and their instructors have earned advanced certification to be qualified and prepared to help community members file their taxes free of charge.

To receive services, taxpayers with an annual income of $58,000 or less can show up to one of the sites between 5 and 7 p.m. to file their 1040 EZ, 1040A and 1040 forms.
