About

NOTE: FRIDAY 1/7 TRAINING HAS BEEN MOVED TO  ZOOM, DUE TO CURRENT COVID CASE NUMBERS.  ALL REGISTRANTS WILL RECEIVE A LINK AND INSTRUCTIONS, AND WILL NEED TO PICK UP OR PRINT TRAINING MATERIALS PRIOR TO CLASS.

Sign-up here for IN-PERSON training to complete the IRS Volunteer Certification to work on-site at United Ways Tax Center, helping our neighbors file their returns for free.

Masks will be worn during training, and we will seat at 50% capacity.

Choose your level of contact: work with customers in person(with social distance and plexiglass dividers) or by telephone in a separate area. Volunteers engage with clients and ask questions to ensure accurate and complete returns are filed, helping taxpayers access credits that they are eligible to claim.

Throughout the process, volunteer preparers have access to on-site tax specialists to answer questions related to filing returns.

Once certified, you can volunteer to complete tax  returns for members of our community and choose days and times that best fit your schedule 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday.
