COALITION SEEKS VOLUNTEERS TO HELP PREPARE TAX RETURNS
The IRS in partnership with the Nevada Free Taxes Coalition is looking for volunteers to assist in preparing tax returns next year at various sponsored sites throughout Southern Nevada. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. All volunteers receive tax training. Individuals with good computer skills are especially needed to assist in preparing and transmitting returns electronically through the IRS E-file program.
Volunteers can help in three separate capacities: as a return preparer, who will actually prepare tax returns; as a site coordinator, coordinating and supervising all aspects of a free tax site and acting as a site manager and perhaps preparing returns; and as a greeter, greeting taxpayers, answering questions and providing forms.
To sign up, contact Pat Smith at 702-338-0434 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Deborah Brooks at email@example.com.
AARP SEEKS VOLUNTEERS FOR FREE TAX PREPARATION PROGRAM
The AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program plans to offer free tax assistance and preparation for taxpayers with low to moderate income. In its 46th year, the program is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, giving special attention to the older population. The service is offered in conjunction with the IRS and is open to anyone, not just AARP members.
Last year in Nevada, 260 volunteers helped more than 12,700 people file federal tax returns and answered tax-related questions. The program is offered at senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations.
The program needs volunteers. Tax volunteers must complete a tax preparation workshop from the IRS before working with taxpayers. There is also a need for grass-roots leadership, on-site greeters and those who can provide language assistance in Spanish, Mandarin or Cantonese.
