Volunteer Income Tax Assistance to provide free tax preparation to local residents. The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties is currently seeking volunteers for the 2014 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites provided at a United Way partner program. VITA is a free service and will aid qualifying local residents in claiming their tax refund dollars.
Volunteers are needed throughout January to April to assist with the sites. 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 and screening to tax preparation. Volunteers should be available on a weekly basis during tax season, and volunteer registration is available at www.unitedwayvolunteer.org. Volunteers must pass a certification test in order to be a VITA volunteer. Trainings are tentatively scheduled for January 14 and 15, 2014 to help potential volunteers prepare for the certification test. These trainings are not mandatory but are beneficial to those taking the test.
