Volunteers Sought for Income Tax Assistance

United Way of Indian River County has a need for people to provide free tax preparation assistance through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA is available to low-to-moderate-income individuals and families earning less than $52,000 a year.

VITA volunteers do more than just prepare people’s taxes. They play a critical role in ensuring that low-income workers access valuable tax credits without paying high fees.

Benefits of becoming a VITA volunteer include: free IRS training and materials to help you develop a lifelong skill and build your resume; a variety of locations, dates and times convenient to your schedule; ongoing support; a Certificate of Recognition & Letter of Appreciation from the IRS at the end of the tax season; and the personal satisfaction you’ll gain from providing an important service to your community. No accounting experience is required. The tax software guides you every step of the way and volunteers are protected under the Volunteer Protection Act.

Volunteer training in Indian River County will be held in January and certification will be attained on-line.  Certified volunteers will be required to commit to two half-days, or one full-day per week from January 22nd through April 15th, 2014.  If you would like to volunteer please email eve.ballance@unitedwayirc.org or call 772-567-8900 ext. 20.
