Volunteer with the Free Tax Campaign


Want to help during the 2015 tax season? Volunteer registration will be open early October. You can be updated via email when registration opens by signing up here.

Help hard-working, 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 2 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.

  • Intake and Benefits Specialists are the first to see our clients. They help clients get their paperwork in order, connect clients to healthcare, food, and other benefits, and keep the waiting areas efficient and organized.

In 2014, volunteers prepared 17,450 returns. This brought $24 million in refunds back into the community, including $8.5 million in Earned Income Tax Credits.
