You can really make a difference in someone's life. The time commitment is 3 - 4 hours per week. It is very easy to find an opportunity that fits your schedule because the sites have varying hours of operation, including week end or week night/day for only 10 weeks from the end of January to mid April.

Not to worry, the IRS trains you and certifies that you have passed the test to prepare taxes.
