IRS Certifies ZHS students as Tax Preparers

Zapata High School Students were trained by an IRS agent this past semester to become tax preparer volunteers through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This is a new initiative that began this year with the enthusiastic support and guidance of ZHS Career Technical Education (CTE) teacher, Mrs. Celina Canales. The students and teacher attended an intensive training by the IRS division and took an exam to become certified tax preparers. They are inviting the public to take advantage of the new free service offered on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning Jan. 27, 2020 from 4:30-6:30 pm. Location will be at Zapata High School-Room 163.
From L-r: Aracely Barrientos, Jessica Barrera, Alexandra Rodriguez, and Jose Alvarado.
