Canutillo ISD announced Thursday that the district is a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and My Free Taxes site.
The VITA program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.
CISD officials say, “It is a win/win for both our community who is able to receive access and assistance to file their income taxes for free and for our Career and Technical Education (CTE) students and community members who have been educated on filing income taxes through a 24-hour course sponsored by the IRS.”
Officials added, “We are very proud to be the only VITA site on the far west side of El Paso and helping our community.”
For seven Saturdays in the months of February, March and April, students will be assisting clients with filing income tax returns at Canutillo High School from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
