Grow Brooklyn is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to enable members of its community to preserve and grow their assets, thereby securing their economic future. It is with this mission that we recognized the opportunity over 18 years ago to start a Free Tax Prep Program program for the underserved Brooklyn residents. NYC Free Tax Prep sites are operated by community-based organizations in partnership with the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DWCP).

As Brooklyn’s largest noncommercial tax provider, we have grown to cover most of central Brooklyn along with southern Brooklyn. This is, in large part, thanks to our volunteer tax preparers.

Volunteers will be tasked with helping us run the sites. Tax Preparers help with completing high quality tax returns for low- and middle-income Brooklynites. You can also help with running the site doing intakes or other tasks. Our ideal volunteers would have a high interest and motivation for building on their tax preparation experience. They should also have a passion for helping the members of our community who need it most. Most of all, our volunteers should be able to practice patience, good customer service skills, and have a good sense of humor! This is a great opportunity to build valuable work experience, meet new friends, and help people who need it.


Wide ranging benefits include learning new skills or building on valuable professional experience with active work duties. We have served as professional references for many of our volunteers. CPAs, Attorneys, and Enrolled Agents also receive Continuing Education Credits upon completion of volunteer service in this program.

Build a sense of achievement for directly and positively affecting your fellow Brooklynites by providing them with top quality tax service without the predatory service fees associated with retail tax providers. If that isn’t enough for you to sign up, we’ll also provide snacks.

General Requirements

All volunteers are welcome! If you don't have any tax experience, no problem! We provide training.
We also have requirements as it relates to the Coronavirus pandemic. All participants must wear masks; hand sanitizer and washing facilities will be provided.


All tax preparers must pass the IRS Volunteer Basic Certification via the Link and Learn training module online. Advanced Certification is also welcome. Upon completion of Link and Learn, volunteers would then be provided hands on training session to prepare them for the tax season.

Mission Statement

We are a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization whose mission is to enable members of the community to preserve and grow their assets, thereby securing their economic future. We are an affiliate of Brooklyn Coop Federal Credit Union, a community financial institution whose mission is to build wealth, resilience, and opportunity through just and affordable financial services.


We serve the Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Bushwick, Crown Heights, East New York, Williamsburg and other working class neighborhoods in Kings and Queens Counties in New York City with a narrow, yet heavily demanded, set of services. These services are available in English or Spanish and are free or low-cost. Our key programs include:
1. VITA program - providing thousands of Brooklyn residents each year with free tax preparation services, securing millions of dollars in tax benefits.
2. Foreclosure prevention - counseling and representing homeowners towards the resolution of troubled home loans. Our counselors and attorneys have served about a thousand clients, resulting in the saving of hundreds of homes.
3. End of life planning ("Protect Your Treasure") - assisting residents with the documentation they need to ensure their assets are passed seamlessly and with little cost to their heirs.
