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.

For 2018 Medicare coverage, open enrollment is from October 15 to December 7.
Medicare health and drug plans can make changes each year—things like cost, coverage, and what providers and pharmacies are within their networks.
October 15 to December 7 is when all people with Medicare can change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.
