Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Recruitment (ASL) - YouTube video text script


Hi, I'm Maria, and I work for the IRS.

How would you like to help people with low to moderate incomes file their taxes?

You can, through the irs Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs, better known as VITA and TCE.


Then we'd like to hear from you, because we need more volunteers like you who want to make a difference.

Each year thousands of volunteers help prepare millions of tax returns at thousands of sites nationwide.

But more volunteers are always needed.

As a volunteer, you will learn how to prepare individual tax returns.

And at the same time, you will help taxpayers get 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 irs.gov/volunteers, then fill out the sign-up form.

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.

Sign up now and make a difference in your community.

And thank you for your interest in becoming a VITA or TCE volunteer.

Again, to get started, go to irs.gov/volunteers
