We are looking for greeters tax preparers.

For more details, go to volunteer.uwpickens.org. No experience is necessary. All volunteers will become IRS-certified tax preparers for free. Training begins in January 2021. Tax preparation will begin in late January 2021. We ask that you are willing to donate at least 3-5 hours a week for the duration of tax season. Tax preparation sites will be in Liberty, Central, Easley, and Pickens.

We help our customers receive an average of $910.29 in tax refunds they were owed by the IRS. This can have a significant impact on the quality of life of some individuals and families. This is also a great opportunity for accounting and financial management students to get experience in tax preparation and in working with the general public on financial matters. The IRS certification also counts towards continuing education credits for accountants and financial managers already working in the field. This is a chance to give back to your community while receiving valuable work experience.
