Tax Preparation

Socorro ISD College students Assist Native Residents Put together For Revenue Tax – El Paso Herald Submit

With the tax season in full swing, hStudents in the Socorro Independent School District are partnering with GECU and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) to offer free tax preparation services through April 15.

Services are provided at high schools in America, Eastlake, Socorro, Montwood, El Dorado and Pebble Hills.

Students are enrolled in various courses for vocational and technical education. Instructors have earned either basic and / or advanced certification along with students in preparation to help community members file their taxes for free.

To receive services, taxpayers with annual income of $ 60,000 or less can submit their 1040 EZ, 1040A, and 1040 forms to one of the locations between 4:30 PM and 6:45 PM. Taxpayers with disabilities, the elderly or limited English language skills above the maximum income can continue to receive support in their tax preparation.

The process was adjusted this year to take security measures and social distancing into account. Customers can drop off their documents through a drive through service at the high school. The tax preparation program teacher / supervisor assigns the cases to a student who prepares the records.

Customers have the option to either sign electronically or return to campus to sign their tax return. Tax advisors ensure the confidentiality and security of documents throughout the process.

Individuals should provide photo identification, an original social security card for everyone listed on their income tax return, W-2 pay slips for 2020, 1099-SSA, 1099-R and 1099-G, labor costs, 1095 health insurance, direct deposit information, the 1098 for student loans, proof of childcare expenses, and property tax returns. In the case of joint submissions, both persons must be present. In addition, when submitting documents, individuals need to know how much money they received on each stimulus test over the past year.
