Volunteer for Tax Time

January 11th, 2018

Are you pondering your goals, plans and hopes for 2018?  Considering if you want to give back more or volunteer in your local community?

If you are, Tax Time has GREAT opportunities for you coming very soon.  The tax season is quickly approaching and we would love to have you VOLUNTEER at one of our tax sites in 2018.

We are currently preparing volunteers to help operate our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites.  We will need volunteers to greet clients, prepare taxes for clients and provide special events assistance at these sites.

If you are interested in being a Tax Preparer or Greeter, please read our Volunteer Guides for each position.  These will show you the training and certification levels required for each volunteer position:

If you are interested in volunteering at a special event only, please contact us for more information.

Once you have read the appropriate Volunteer Guide, check out our upcoming in-person training opportunities listed below.  These in-person trainings are geared toward the Tax Preparer volunteer role and are optional (See Volunteer Guides for more details).  If you are interested in in-person training for other volunteer roles, please contact us.
