Help Older Taxpayers Get the Credits and Refunds they Deserve
We’re looking for volunteers who want to make a difference in people’s lives. You can help people who can’t afford to pay for professional tax preparation — and often miss out on much-needed tax breaks and refunds — get money back in their pockets.
You don’t have to be a tax pro to volunteer with us — there are many ways to get involved and connect with people in your community. Best of all, giving back through Tax-Aide is rewarding and the camaraderie and support makes volunteering fun.
