Volunteer: Become an IRS Certified Tax Preparer

Income Tax season is approaching and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) is looking for volunteers.

This is an exciting, educational, and enjoyable experience.  VITA is offered through the Coastal Bend CA$H Coalition and assists low-income working individuals and families to help prepare and e-file their tax returns.

Top 4 Reasons to become a VITA Volunteer

      1. No previous experience is required.  Volunteers receive specialized training from certified VITA volunteers and can serve as greeters, reviewers, or tax preparers.
      2. IRS provides free tax law training, e-filing training, and all the materials needed to prepare basic individual income tax returns.
      3. The hours are flexible.  Volunteers are asked to serve an average of 3-5 hours per week from mid-January through tax deadline, which is on April 17, 2012.
      4. Volunteer sites are conveniently located at community centers such as Goodwill in Flour Bluff, Kingsville, and Port Ave.

Last year more than 88,000 volunteers answered the call and made a difference by preparing more than 3 million tax returns at thousands of sites all across the country.
