You can be a hero right in your neighborhood. No cape is needed, just your willingness.
Yearly, the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide group provides assistance to thousands of taxpayers in your area. We provide free tax services for members of our communities that are 50+ and also to those neighbors of low to moderate income.
We are currently seeking volunteers for the upcoming tax season to fill the roles of tax counselors and client facilitators. Bilingual volunteers are also needed (especially speakers of both Spanish and English).
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of four hours per week from February 1 to April 15. No previous experience is necessary.
In January,2019 volunteers will attend a comprehensive training course leading to IRS certification on tax law, tax forms and the software needed to prepare and electronically file income tax returns.
