United Way of Central New Mexico partners with Central New Mexico Community College
United Way of Central New Mexico partners with Central New Mexico Community College and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to offer free tax assistance to local families and individuals. Many of these families qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a federal tax benefit for working families with low to moderate incomes. This tax credit improves financial stability for many local families who are working hard, but barely making it, by significantly boosting their annual incomes – nearly $6,000 for some families. The tax credit is also good for the local economy because our free Tax Help New Mexico sites help to bring millions of dollars in tax refunds to New Mexico each year.
