About Free Tax Program Volunteers
We are actively looking for volunteers for our free tax program, the IRS-sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). You do not need to have had any professional experience preparing taxes as you will receive training to become IRS-certified and you will receive support and guidance from a great group of fun and dedicated volunteers!
- GREETERS - you would be the friendly face filers first see when they walk through the doors of our tax site. You would sign filers in, answer basic questions when they complete their intake forms, and let preparers know about who is in the waiting room. You are required to take a couple of open-book tests from the IRS to ensure you understand the standards of conduct and the intake process that the IRS has defined.
- TAX PREPARERS - you would be the volunteer preparing returns, using our online tax software. You will attend training sessions and become IRS-certified in tax preparation, standards of conduct and the intake process.
- QUALITY REVIEWERS - you would be the volunteer double-checking the returns prepared by the tax preparers to ensure accuracy. You would also be taking the same tests as the tax preparers and you would be detail-oriented and confident in your knowledge of the tax law affecting our filers.
Every step of the way, you will be rewarded with the knowledge that you are making a difference in the lives of others!
Training can begin over the summer so that you aren't rushed during tax season! If you think this is something you'd love to be a part of, contact Nisa for more info!
No one has signed up yet, but you could be the first!
