Tax-Aide Program Seeking New Volunteers

Tax-Aide, the nation's largest free, volunteer-run, tax assistance program is seeking volunteers for the upcoming 2016 tax season. The program provides tax counseling and preparation service to taxpayers with low to moderate income, with special attention to those aged 60 or older. You do not need to be a retiree or AARP member to volunteer or to use the program.
Tax-Aide is a program of the AARP Foundation, offered in conjunction with the IRS. In Williamsburg, the program is offered in partnership with the Williamsburg Regional Library. Volunteers receive free tax training on computers at the library in January. It's a great way to learn new skills and be involved in your community.
In addition to tax counselors, the program needs client facilitators to help people ensure they have the right forms and information. Both groups volunteer for one or more 4-hour shifts each week during tax season (February 1 to April 15). Visit aarp.org/tavolunteer to learn more, or contact George Richmond, District Coordinator, at grichmond4@live.com.
