The Six County Association of Governments improves local government coordination of mutually beneficial programs.
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance
It’s almost Tax Season and we here at Six County, are looking for volunteers to help with our VITA program (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance).
Some of the volunteer opportunities include:
- Tax Preparer-using income tax software to prepare basic tax returns for household income who make $54,000 or less. Tax preparers are required to pass an IRS certification test. Previous experience preparing is not necessary.
- Greeter and Intake Specialist-Welcome tax filers to the tax site and begin the intake process. Greeters work with the Site Coordinator to ensure the site runs smoothly and the taxpayer has a positive experience. This is a very important role for a successful VITA Site.
- Financial Resource Specialist- Specialist provide information to households at tax sites about asset building opportunities and other community resources, such as debt, credit, and housing.
If interested please contact Shara Bastian at 435-893- 0735 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
