File Your Taxes in Minutes for Free

Unless you file for an extension, you have until midnight on April 15th to file your taxes, and that day can creep up on some of us. That's why the Coalition of Community Assistance is helping tax payers get a jump on filing their taxes free of charge.

From now until April 15th, you can spend a Saturday filing your taxes for free at the Mahon Library. "Exactly 50 came through last Saturday," says Elma Moreno with the Coalition.

It's just one of four sites in Lubbock where volunteers with the Coalition of Community Assistance help others file their taxes.

"We have volunteers from American State Bank, the law school, and volunteers from the community that have volunteered to come out and help us," says Moreno.

Marion Bryant with American State Bank is freeing up her Saturday mornings to help for the fifth year in a row.

"It's very gratifying to help people get tax assistance they normally can't pay for," says Bryant.

Marion says your taxes can be filed in as little as 15 minutes, but people wanting free help need to come prepared.

"They need to make sure that they take their social security card. The main thing, if you're filing electronically, the IRS looks at the name and that it matches the social security card, so we have made it one of the guidelines that they bring a social security card with them and all their W-2's, 1099's, and everything they need to attach to their forms," says Moreno.

Too see if you qualify for free tax assistance, you can call the local IRS office. There are four free tax help locations in Lubbock and one in Slaton.
