Volunteer to help seniors this tax season

-A A +A

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide — the nation’s largest free tax preparation and assistance service — is now seeking volunteers for the 2018 tax season.

Volunteers don’t have to be an AARP member to volunteer or have any experience doing taxes. They just need a desire to help others.

Tax volunteers receive free tax training in January and once certified, they work a minimum of four hours a week during tax season, interacting with clients by preparing their tax returns. We need volunteers for Blount, Sevier, Loudon, Roane, and Monroe counties.

Becoming a tax volunteer may be right for individuals if they have a knack for working with numbers and using a computer.

To join the Tax-Aide volunteer team, register at www.aarpfoundation.org/taxaide or email Darell Coppenger at darellcoppenger@gmail.com.
