ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Low income residents and senior citizens in New Mexico can get their taxes prepared for free.
    
Gov. Susana Martinez was in Albuquerque Tuesday to highlight Tax Help New Mexico, which offers free tax preparation for anyone over 65 and New Mexicans with an annual income of less than $52,000.
    
Last season, Tax Help New Mexico prepared 31,478 returns that resulted in $19 million in refunds and saved New Mexicans more than $4 million in tax preparation fees.
    
Tax Help New Mexico is provided through a partnership with the United Way of Central New Mexico and the Central New Mexico Community College. There are more than 25 sites around the state, staffed by volunteers who have passed an IRS certification exam.
