Volunteer to Help Bay Area households File Taxes for Free
Interested in helping out in your community, building your resume, or learning a new skill? As an Earn It! Keep It! Save It! volunteer, you’ll provide free tax filing help to low- to moderate-income taxpayers to help them keep more of the money they have earned. We also need volunteers to greet taxpayers and serve as interpreters at local tax sites.
Last year, almost 4,000 Earn It! Keep It! Save It! volunteers in the Bay Area helped prepare nearly 60,000 tax returns and returned more than $63 million to our community. This tax season, we’ll have over 100 sites throughout seven counties in the Bay Area (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Solano, San Francisco and San Mateo).
How does it work? If you sign up as a volunteer, you’ll attend three to four sessions of classroom instruction (training schedule varies by county, but begins in December or January). For tax professionals or experienced volunteers, online training and certification is available in November. Site operation hours vary by site but each volunteer is asked to commit to volunteer regularly throughout the tax season beginning late January through April 15th.
Many volunteers in our tax program return year after year because they find it such a rewarding experience. Click here to see what volunteers have said about their experiences. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSXupMl1lEU.
