United Way of Charlotte County is recruiting volunteers to serve as tax preparers, greeters, and site coordinators/quality reviewers for the 2021 tax season.

United Way of Charlotte County is offering volunteering opportunities in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood.

Volunteers of all ages and levels of experience are welcome, though it is preferred that volunteers be comfortable working with a computer. Volunteers will receive specialized IRS certified training including learning how to prepare basic tax returns, using online tax preparation software, and learning about tax deductions and tax credits that benefit eligible taxpayers. In addition, experienced agents, certified financial planners, and non-credentialed tax return preparers can earn continuing education credits when volunteering as a VITA tax preparer.

“Tax returns are the biggest paycheck many Americans see all year, providing an opportunity for these community members to budget for large expenses and supplement their monthly income. Nobody should have to question whether they can afford to pay for something as important as this, which is where UWCC’s VITA program comes in,” said Nadia Demyanovskiy, VITA Operations Coordinator. “With the support of trained, IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers, VITA sites provide free tax preparation to individuals and families earning less than $66,000 per year.”


UWCC needs volunteer tax preparers and greeters to work in the VITA sites during the 2021 tax season. Flexible hours and locations are available.

To Register as a volunteer please fill out VITA VOLUNTEER SURVEY. This survey will help us learn more about you and your volunteering preferences.
