We had limited possibilities for this current tax season due to the COVID situation, and our window for training is closed. We hope to be operating close to normal this coming tax season, but our plans, and staffing requirements, won't really jell until late this summer. But if the below looks attractive to you, you're welcome to leave your contact information, and we'll get back about that time to check if this opportunity could still be of interest to you. Thank you [edited 3/3/22]

An AARP Tax-Aide Counselor provides free income tax form preparation and answers tax questions for low- and moderate-income taxpayers two or more days a week during the February to April tax filing season.

You will be required to attend January training sessions on the tax code and tax software and to complete and pass the IRS take-home exam. Volunteers need to apply by early October in order to be scheduled for training. Familiarity with tax preparation software is a must for counseling, although administrative positions are available without that requirement.

This is a great opportunity to help low-to-middle-income and older taxpayers in your community.
