Do you prepare your own taxes? Are you interested in learning about the new tax laws? Are you looking for an opportunity to give back to your community? The AARP Tax-Aide Foundation Program is expanding its team of volunteers in York County for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide is a program that offers free tax filing help for those who need it most, especially adults 50 and older, during the tax season.
We are looking for compassionate and friendly volunteers to join our team for the upcoming tax season. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers receive training and continued support in a welcoming environment. There are a variety of roles for individuals at every level of experience who want to make a difference in someone else’s life. Volunteer tax preparers complete tax preparation training and IRS certification prior to working with taxpayers. There is also a need for grassroots leadership, on-site greeters, and interpreters who can provide language assistance. Last year in York County, nearly 60 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 3,500 people file their federal and state tax returns. The program is offered at 14 sites in York County, including senior centers, churches, libraries and other convenient locations.
