Income Tax Assistance Volunteers Needed

Thursday, December 14, 2017
5:00pm - 6:00pm

Want to Learn More?

Each year, many ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and poverty-level households pay up to $200 for tax preparation assistance, although they are already struggling to afford basic necessities. To avoid this fee and provide some much-needed tax relief to these community members, United Way Gateways to Financial Empowerment participates in an IRS-certified volunteer tax preparation program.

Last year through this volunteer tax preparation program, more than 160 community volunteers prepared almost 6,000 free tax returns at libraries, community centers, and places of worship across northern New Jersey. Volunteers helped people to claim more than $2 million in tax credits, resulting in $6 million in tax refunds.

You Can Help!

United Way of Northern New Jersey is proud to partner with IRS, NORWESCAP RSVP & Counseling, and Greater Providence Missionary Baptist Church to expand this vital service to reach the growing number of families and individuals in need across the region.  No experience is necessary!  An accounting or financial background is not necessary!  The only requirment is an interest in helping people.  Free training and support are provided to help you become certified by the IRS.  As a volunteer tax preparer, you will learn to prepare both federal and state tax returns using an easy-to-learn software proogram.  

Please click here to sign up for our one-hour orientation webinar, which provides a brief overview of United Way of Northern New Jersey's free tax preparation program and the many opportunities it provides for volunteers.  There are several dates and times available in September, October, November, and December, 2017 and January, 2018. 

For questions about our free tax preparation program, email Monica Conover or call 973.993.1160, x529
