Volunteer Registration

There are many ways to lend a hand. In addition to tax preparers, we need client greeters, bilingual screeners and data entry volunteers. Volunteers will work in teams to prepare the returns, so you don't necessarily need a tax background to help. Tax experts will be on site to answer any questions you have along the way.
