We are seeking volunteers to assist with the 2014 tax season. Volunteers will be trained with Internal Revenue Service tax materials to help people whose incomes are $52,000 or less with federal and state individual income tax returns. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly Program (VITA/TCE) teaches how to prepare simple federal and state tax returns. In return, volunteers will be asked to donate about 4 hours a week helping at a VITA/TCE site from mid-January through April 15. Most VITA/TCE sites use computers to prepare and electronically transmit tax returns (e-file). Volunteers do not need any accounting experience, but must want to help others. VITA/TCE volunteers participate in a training session (in-class, online or self-study) and are tested on what they learn.
Training dates are below and will be held at the Lancaster County Library:
Wednesday, December 11th from 2:00-5:00pm – VITA ORIENTATION
