Income Tax Return Preparer
3 people are interested
South Shore Community Action Council operates a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to provide free electronic preparation and filing of state and federal income tax returns on behalf of low-income tax payers.
Due to the pandemic, we have shifted to a "virtual" model. Tax payers drop off the paperwork needed to complete the return. Volunteers prepare returns onsite at our offices using TaxWise software. To maintain social distancing, the tax payer is not present during tax preparation.
We are looking for additional tax preparers to join our dedicated team of IRS-certified volunteers who have worked for the program for the past 12 years.
Volunteers complete IRS certification training during December and January. Certification training typically takes 20-25 hours in total. Tax preparation starts the last week of January/first week of February and runs through April 15th.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About SOUTH SHORE COMMUNITY ACTION COUNCIL INC
71 OBERY ST, PLYMOUTH, MA 02360, US
Our mission is to eliminate poverty along the South Shore in partnership with individuals, organizations, and businesses that want to make a powerful impact on the lives of their less fortunate neighbors. Typically, our partners are worried about children going to bed hungry and falling behind their peers, concerned about their elderly neighbors who have to choose between heat and prescriptions, or are frustrated for working families that can't earn a living wage to afford the high cost of living on the South Shore. If you share these concerns, then we want to partner with you and help you find a way to get involved!
Each year, SSCAC improves the quality of life for over 27,000 people of all ages living on the South Shore, Cape Cod, and the Islands. Founded in 1965, work together with our community partners to:
- help to fight hunger among children and seniors,
- keep low income elderly and families warm in winter,
- stimulate, educate, and care for our most vulnerable infants, toddlers, and preschoolers,
- safely and respectfully transport people who are elderly or disabled
