Seeking Volunteers to do Free Taxes
The Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness is seeking volunteers during the upcoming tax season, to staff Free Tax Preparation Sites throughout Mercer County. You can make a huge impact on family or individualís life. Sign up!
To be a volunteer tax preparer, you must take and pass the IRS test. There will be a short 2 hour session, followed by individual self-study with support and then a longer session where you will receive practical knowledge in tax law, and TaxWise software use, as well as hands-on practice completing tax returns.
We are also looking for bilingual volunteers to help with two new sites. If you are bilingual, but donít want to learn the taxes we could use you as a translator.
Training will be scheduled in December and January. Volunteers are needed January to April for 2 to 4 hours a week. There are a variety of sites with different hours needing volunteers.
