United Way is recruiting volunteers to become IRS-Certified tax preparers for the upcoming tax season. .
If you are comfortable with numbers, like solving puzzles, and enjoy helping other people, volunteer tax preparation may be just the thing for you. United Way of Northern New Jersey offers free tax preparation services to lower-income households throughout our communities. Last year volunteer tax preparers completed over 5,000 tax returns. Their efforts helped bring $6.3 million in refunds back into people's pockets and the local economy!
