CNM’s TAX HELP New Mexico program began 35 years ago at Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) as a practical means of giving accounting students work experience in tax preparation while serving a community need.
The free tax return preparation service prepares and files tax returns electronically for those whose annual household income is less than $50,000 or who are age 65 or older. According to recent numbers, 70 percent of New Mexicans are eligible for the program, yet only 6.5 percent take advantage of it.
CNM’s TAX HELP New Mexico serves the state’s low-income and elderly residents by:
• Providing free tax return preparation
• Educating people about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) — a federal credit worth up to $5,657 for qualified low-to-moderate income workers — and helping them claim the money to which they are entitled
