Flexible Hours & Training
Your volunteer hours can be arranged to flex around your other commitments. There is no experience necessary to apply. All volunteers are welcome, and bilingual people are especially encouraged to put your abilities to a very good use here. In the late fall and winter of each year, free training is provided so that volunteer tax helpers can become IRS-certified. Volunteers can expect to spend from 4 -15 hours per week greeting or preparing returns during the tax season. Call the number below to find out more about the training and volunteer opportunities.
