Want to Volunteer?

With word of EITC spreading each year, more and more citizens are seeking assistance from Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites to help them fill out their tax forms for free.  To keep from having to turn away someone seeking help, volunteers at the free tax preparation sites are badly needed.  Opportunities for volunteering involve not only preparing tax forms, but also setting up the sites, providing financial education/literacy information, registration and intake, assisting with special kick-off events and a whole range of services.

If you would like to volunteer for the 2012 tax season, the time to sign up is now!  Training will be provided. 

You can sign up in one of three ways:

1) Contact the Points of Light volunteer hotline at 1-800-865-8683.

2) Call 2-1-1, United Way’s Information Call Center

3) See below for volunteer contact information in your area. (Note: E-mail address listings substitute "(at)" for the symbol "@" to avoid attracting spam to those addresses.)

 

Who can I contact to volunteer at a tax preparation site?

Please click on your county located below in the following list.
