When: Oct. 7-Feb. 1 2016
Volunteers are needed to prepare Federal and Georgia state tax returns. This free service to consumers began 47 years ago with a small group of four people and has grown to help provide needed assistance especially for but not limited to the age 60+ population. All volunteers who will prepare tax returns will need to attend a five-day training program which will be held in early January. The tax preparation season will run from February 1st through April 15th, 2016. A background in accounting is not necessary, only a willingness to help low- to middle-income residents and familiarity with computers. Volunteer opportunities are not limited to tax preparation. Each location also has a person to welcome and organize taxpayers as they come into the site. To begin the volunteer process, please visit www.aarp.org/taxvolunteer and complete the application as soon as possible. You will be contacted by a current volunteer in your area who will answer all your questions.
