Help hardworking, low-income families keep more of what they earn and save for the future. Through this volunteer opportunity, you will help families and individuals get their taxes done as well as connect them to savings opportunities and public benefits. There are two ways we need you:

  • Volunteer tax preparers make the campaign possible, helping clients complete their tax returns. Volunteers walk clients through their taxes, ensuring that they receive all the credits they are eligible for. Show more details

  • Volunteer intake and benefits specialists (VIBS) are the gateways to financial services and public benefits for our clients. By answering questions, helping clients with paperwork, and connecting clients with additional resources like Basic Food or financial counseling, VIBS are essential members of our tax site team.

In 2014, 825 volunteers prepared 17,450 returns. This secured $24 million in refunds back into the community, including $8.5 million in Earned Income Tax Credits. Help us do even more this year and join the Free Tax Preparation Campaign!
