December 22, 2020 Join the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs, and learn to prepare taxes for people in your community. Volunteers prepare millions of tax returns in communities nationwide each filing season. With many people experiencing financial changes this year, additional volunteers are needed. As a volunteer, you'll get all the specialized training you need. You can also choose a volunteer role that doesn't require tax law certification. You can sign up by visiting IRS.gov. Shortly after signing up, you will receive an invite for a virtual orientation.
