Total Action for Progress (TAP) helps individuals and families achieve sustainable, equitable economic and personal independence through education, employment, affordable housing, and safe and healthy environments. Tax help is in short supply--each new volunteer means our Tax Clinic can serve more taxpayers. By helping low-income working families file their taxes, you can make a huge difference in the community while building your resumé and having fun!
TAP urgently needs student and adult volunteers for our annual free tax clinic. The clinic runs from February to April every year.
* No experience required
* Free online training
* Just six hours per week for ten weeks

In 2019, TAP completed 953 tax returns and refunded over $1.2 million back into the community to eligible taxpayers. TAP's Tax Clinic focuses on helping eligible taxpayers receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC). We are a VITA site in partnership with IRS and follow eligibility guidelines. TAP limits its scope of focus and completes both the federal and state tax returns. Tax preparation is free and all tax returns are submitted electronically.
As a Volunteer Tax Preparer, you will help TAP achieve its program goal to assist over 700 taxpayers in 2022. The VITA clinic plans to open mid-January and operate through April 15, 2022 (Monday through Friday only, between the hours of 9am-5pm, by appointment).
