AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service, is seeking volunteers across the state to help Colorado taxpayers who are seeking assistance preparing and filing their 2012 tax returns.
Volunteers do not need to be AARP members or retirees to participate. Tax-Aide is particularly in need of volunteers who are bilingual in English/Spanish to support the increasing number of Spanish-speaking taxpayers seeking assistance.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers receive free tax training and are reimbursed on a limited basis for qualified program-related expenses. They help taxpayers at sites around the state, learning new skills while giving back to countless communities.
“We’ve assisted tens of thousands of people in preparing and filing their tax returns,” said Angela Cortez, AARP Colorado spokeswoman. “We could not do it without our hundreds of volunteers, who make an indelible mark on the communities they help.”
You'll work with taxpayers directly; filling out tax returns and helping them seek a refund. Experience isn't necessary – AARP will train volunteers on the latest tax preparation forms and software.
Last year, more than 600 Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 30,000 taxpayers across the state. They join the more than 35,000 Tax-Aide volunteers across the country, helping millions of taxpayers each year.
So get the joy and satisfaction of helping others by applying to join the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteer team today. Your expertise will be appreciated more than you can imagine.
