  Email   Print

The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties is currently seeking volunteers for the 2016 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA is a free service and will aid qualifying local residents in claiming their tax refund dollars.

In 2015, VITA volunteers filed nearly 730 tax returns resulting in over $1 million returned into Rutherford and Cannon counties.

Volunteers are needed from January to April 2016 to assist with VITA sites located in Murfreesboro and Smyrna. Volunteer hours are flexible and depend on the volunteer's availability. Experience with tax preparation is preferred but not required.

Volunteer responsibilities will include greeting, screening and/or tax preparation. Volunteer registration is available at www.yourlocalvita.org. Volunteers must pass a certification test in order to be a VITA volunteer. Trainings will be provided to help potential volunteers prepare for the certification test. These trainings are not mandatory but are beneficial to those taking the test.

For additional questions and information, please visit www.yourlocalvita.org or contact the United Way at (615) 893-7303.
