This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Sign-up here to use RECORDED training to complete the IRS Volunteer Certification to work on-site at United Way's Tax Center, helping our neighbors file their tax returns for free

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. 

These are recordings of actual Basic and Advanced Zoom classes led by Judy Allen, VITA Director.  These trainings are for volunteers who would like to be Tax Preparers with United Way of Central Alabama.

Please register for training to let us know your are participating.

TECHNOLOGY:  Training is easiest if you have a large or double computer screen, to watch class in one window while entering tax problems in another.  (Two laptops could serve this purpose as well, or cast the link from your phone to your TV while following the steps on your laptop).

TRAINING MATERIALS: You will need hard copies of the training materials to help with the virtual training.  These will be available under the awning of "Auditorium" entrance (covered drive through) of brick United Way building (GPS address 3600 8th Avenue South, Birmingham, 35222).  

You can complete the Basic Training, Advanced Training, or both.
