What We Do
The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs prepare free tax returns for people with low income.
Our program does taxes year round, but the busiest time is during the tax season (January – April). We are looking for adult volunteers who can greet taxpayers, answer questions, collect/organize paperwork, prepare taxes, or help to operate the tax site (scheduling, set up, closing). There are opportunities for everyone, but we can offer continuing education credits to the following professionals: Enrolled Agents (EAs), non-credentialed tax return preparers (AFSP), and Certified Financial Planners (CFP). Volunteers must complete training and certification, which is typically in November/December. Please register on our website or contact us with questions.
