Jackson County volunteers who provide free basic tax forms preparation and counseling for individuals are looking for others to join their team.
Volunteers must be willing to assist taxpayers at least one day a week during tax season. Training will take place during the month of January. No previous tax preparation experience is required. You will be trained and certified by local mentors using IRS and AARP Foundation training materials and guidelines. Experience with computers, accounting, tax preparation, or just being good with numbers is helpful but not a requirement.
This effort is partially supported by the Jackson County Senior Center and the Jackson County Public Library Complex. Last year the group of volunteers prepared over 326 tax returns for local residents of all ages at these locations.
