Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Recruitment (ASL) - Youtube video text script
Hi, I’m Patrick and I work for the IRS.
How would you like to help low- to moderate-income families file their taxes through the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs, better known as VITA and TCE?
If so, we’d like to hear from you because we need more volunteers like you who have a desire to make a difference.
Last year more than 88,000 volunteers helped prepare more than three million returns at thousands of sites nationwide.
As a volunteer, you’ll learn how to prepare individual tax returns.
And at the same time, you’ll help taxpayers receive the tax credits and deductions they’re entitled to.
In fact, most people who visit our VITA and TCE sites are due refunds, which could provide them with much needed assistance.
If you’d like to volunteer, go to www.IRS.gov and type tax volunteer in the search field, then provide the information requested.
An organization in your community that partners with the IRS will follow up to welcome you and answer any questions you may have about the process.
We do hope to hear from you.
And thank you for your interest in becoming a VITA or TCE volunteer.
