Volunteer Opportunity posted by: The Spanish Speaking Unity Council
Posted on: December 9, 2013
Interested in helping reduce poverty in your community? As an Earn It! Keep It! Save It! volunteer at The Unity Council, you'll provide free tax filing assistance to low to moderate income taxpayers to help them keep more of the money they have earned. We also need volunteers to greet taxpayers, serve as interpreters, provide childcare, and be asset coaches at our tax site.
Last year, over 3,300 Earn It! Keep It! Save It! volunteers in the Bay Area helped prepare over 68,000 tax returns and returned more than $74 million to our community. The Unity Council helped over 800 clients receive a total refund amount of $961,347.
How does it work? If you sign up to volunteer as a tax preparer, you'll have a choice of studying online through the IRS website or attending three sessions of classroom instruction. If you sign up as a greeter, interpreter, childcare assistant, or asset coach, you will attend an orientation in January. Each volunteer is asked to commit to volunteer regularly throughout the tax season beginning late January through April 15th.
