Tax-Aide program seeks volunteers
The IRS-sponsored AARP Tax-Aide program is looking for volunteers for the upcoming tax filing season. AARP Foundation Tax-Aides provide free personal income tax assistance and tax form preparation for low and moderate income taxpayers, with special attention to those age 50+.
You need not have any prior tax experience. As an AARP Tax-Aide volunteer, you will be provided with free training through IRS designed classes. The initial meeting for prospective volunteers is in early December. Tax preparation season runs from mid-January to mid-April. We are looking for volunteers for Fairview Park, Westlake, and Bay Village.
Our volunteers fill several roles:
Counselors: Work with taxpayers to prepare the paperwork used for the tax return.
Computer Operators: Enter the taxpayer’s information into the computer for electronic filing and printing.
Greeters: Greet and assist our clients and keep our sites flowing smoothly.
Technical Coordinators: Use their knowledge of personal computers, software, and electronic communication systems to set up and maintain the hardware and software used at our tax preparation sites.
As a volunteer, you’ll meet a great group of people! For more information go to our local site at: taxaide.webs.com. Click on recruitment and fill in your information. Someone will contact you.
