***Update since posting: We'll have 6 sites around Austin where you can volunteer! Check out more about this opportunity below.***
Community Tax Centers provide free income tax preparation services to Austin’s low-income families. By helping people claim all of the tax credits for which they are eligible, volunteers can give their neighbors a chance to build a financial future. In 2017, the Community Tax Centers will prepare 20,000 tax returns and bring over $35 million into the pockets of those who need it most in our community. To do this, we need more than 600 volunteers!
Volunteer Tax Preparers work directly with our clients to complete income tax returns using web-based software. No experience is required - we'll teach you everything you need to know, and on-site staff support is always available.
Volunteers will complete an 8-hour classroom training and IRS certification test (don't worry - it's open-book and untimed!). During tax season, from January 13 to April 18, volunteers are asked to serve an average of 3 hours per week.
Join our team today to ensure you are ready to serve when tax season starts! Send an email to Jackie.Cuellar@foundcom.org for more information or find our application at http://foundcom.org/volunteer-with-community-tax-centers/.
