Volunteer with United Way Free Tax Prep Campaign

Thursday, December 14, 2017

The United Way Free Tax Prep Campaign assists low- and moderate-income households by filing their taxes for free and connecting them to public benefits.

There are two volunteer positions:
  • Tax Volunteer: File clients’ taxes (free two-day training).
  • Volunteer Intake and Benefits Specialist: Screen for and make referrals to public benefits (free one-day training).

As a volunteer, you can:

1. Network and Gain Practical Work Experience: Working in a shared space allows for countless networking opportunities with our other volunteers from big companies. Volunteers will become trained and IRS tax certified, and build skills from filing numerous taxes.

2. Bring Value to the Community: Volunteers on average bring $30,000 back to the community. This amount is gained via refunds, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and other benefits.

3. Get Letters of Recommendation: Site managers can provide letters based on performance.

They ask volunteers to join them weekly for a 3-4 hour shift during tax season, which runs from January 9th-April 19th. Training sessions take place from December through mid-January.
