They’re too young to purchase alcohol, but they’re old enough – and certainly skilled enough – to prepare your tax returns.
On Saturday, students at Philip & Sala Burton High School’s Academy of Finance – who happen to be certified by the Internal Revenue Service – are scheduled to prepare tax returns for low-income residents in The City, according to the San Francisco Unified School District.
Last year, high school students in the program completed 51 returns that saved clients around $58,000 through credits available to low-income taxpayers, the district said.
“This year, students hope to double their number of clients,” it said.
Burton’s Academy of Finance is part of the National Academy Foundation, in which students study throughout their high school years with a core group of teachers in finance, information technology, engineering or health sciences, the district said.
