Assist taxpayers in satisfying their tax responsibilities by building and maintaining partnerships with key stakeholders, seeking to create and share value by informing, educating and communicating with our shared customers. IE-Partner with volunteers and agencies to provide free tax assistance and financial literacy to low-moderate income individuals and families.
Volunteers receive training and assistance to file Individual Income Tax Returns for low income, elderly, Veterans or disabled taxpayers. You will learn how to prepare a tax return and learn about special t ax credits people may benefit from. The training and training materials are free and it is available on-line at your leisure or in a classroom as long as you are volunteering. Every tax site (VITA Site/AARP Site) has experienced volunteers to help you, toll free hotlines you can call with questions, and a local IRS Employee you can call to answer questions. Every return is double-checked by an experienced volunteer to ensure accuracy. Classes start in early fall, with a brief refresher course closer to the filing season for any updates-so come join us now! We ask that you volunteer 4 (or more if you can) hours a week from mid January thru April 15th. Learn a new skill, help your community, add experience to your resume! Come help people get the refunds they qualify for and meet our fantastic community partners: Citizens for Citizens, Community Action Program, Diocese of Providence, AARP Tax Aide, RI Senior Centers, YWCA, International Institute, SEDC, etc. Your community needs your help!
