Many often times, people procrastinate because they are unsure of who or what to claim on their taxes, but there’s a program that can help you with the process and it’s completely free of charge.

The VITA program has been helping Laredo families file their taxes for many years and this year, they are hoping that more people take advantage of their services.

Last year, the program helped over 5,000 people; best of all, most residents in Laredo qualify for their services.

Experts are available at LBJ High School from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

All other area high schools such as United and Alexander are available from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Representatives say to have all your documents, such as social security number, ID, tax forms as well as last year's forms.

The deadline to submit your taxes is April 17, 2019.
