We train all volunteers as IRS Certified tax preparers during a one day training class on a Saturday in Januaury.
We have various days and time slots available throughout the tax season to volunteer. We can use you if you can give us 3 hours and we can use you if you commit to the whole season. You may choose the day, times and hours that best fit your schedule. We have positions open for:
Advanced Preparers - this is our most-needed position as they can handle all tax situations we handle at VITA. We are also always in need of Advanced preparers willing to shadow our current Site Coordinator in preparation of someday stepping up to a Site Coordinator role.
Basic Preparers - These individuals play an important role helping the majority of individuals we prepare taxes for throughout the season.
Greeters are always in demand and are an integral part of our team as they are the first contact and help the process run smoothly for the preparers.
Spanish Interpreters are always in demand as our Spanish speaking population grows.

- Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m.
- Thursday evenings from 6-8 p.m.
