CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — If you haven’t filed your taxes yet, you have until April 15 and the VITA program can help you get it done.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance is a partnership among many groups, including the United Way of the Coastal Bend and Del Mar College.

The program gives accounting students a chance to use their skills.

They prepare the taxes under supervision from their instructors.
