If you are looking to learn a new skill while helping those in your community the Internal Revenue Service may have just what you’re looking for. The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Program are looking for volunteers to help prepare tax returns in communities across Indiana.
VITA and TCE sites provide free income tax preparation for low-to moderate-income taxpayers – generally those who make $50,000 and below and need help filing their tax returns. VITA and TCE sites are located in community centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls and other convenient locations and are normally open evenings and weekends.
IRS partners with non-profit, community and governmental organizations to provide free tax assistance to more than 3 million taxpayers nationwide.
The IRS provides free tax law training and all the materials needed to prepare basic individual income tax returns. Training classes generally start in December and January and are held at convenient locations throughout the state. Also, you have the option of completing your training and certification online, 24/7, through IRS E-Learning, Link and Learn, www.irs.gov/ .
Volunteer opportunities are available from the week of Feb. 1 through April 15.
To get started, contact the IRS at 317-685-7847, fax at 317-685-7775, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
