Technical difficulties delayed San Diego City College students from filing their taxes on the second day of the free on-campus service.

City College still plans to offer students the opportunity to file their taxes for free on campus through a certified VITA tax preparer. The tax service started on Monday and will run through April 16.

Assistant Professor Shana Carr announced to students on Tuesday at approximately 2:20 p.m. there was a problem with the connection with the system.

“The application goes up to the state taxes but will not let us continue,” Carr said.

It was later determined that the problem was not simply an internet connection.

Carr confirmed a system-wide problem delaying the tax return process across the nation.  

Students had to pause their progress and reschedule an appointment to finish their tax return form.

The free tax service is available in room BT 214. Appointments can be made on www.myfreetaxes.org.
