As a volunteer you join over 220 of your neighbors who are making a tangible impact. By providing free income tax assistance you can save families an average of $300 in tax preparation fees and ensure they receive their entire refund plus valuable tax credits.

With the support of IRS & AARP Foundation Tax-Aide you will receive 40 hours of training and be prepared to receive an IRS certification. Training on tax law and tax preparation software will take place virtually preparing you to make a difference with either remote or on-site volunteer opportunities.

Our tax preparation volunteers are not tax professionals, most have completed their own or family member’s basic tax returns. Some are students, retirees, professionals in many walks of life that enjoy working with numbers, meeting new people and can commit to four hours a week during the tax season, February through April. Volunteers appreciate the flexible hours with day, evening, and weekend opportunities.

On-line training for Dutchess and Putnam volunteers takes place in December and Orange County in January. Mentors will be your guide as you join this team of dedicated and passionate volunteers, you will have the Tax-Aide team by your side.

If numbers are not your thing consider joining the team in our support roles, tax site greeters or program marketing. There is an urgent need for volunteers who are bi-lingual and can assist those who do not speak English. Training and support are provided for all roles.
