The Neighborhood Improvement Association is seeking volunteers to prepare free federal and state income tax returns through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. No experience necessary – all volunteers will be trained and IRS certified. VITA volunteers help low-to moderate-income working families maximize their refunds by preparing free tax returns and obtaining several credits which increase their refunds. Volunteers help taxpayers save millions and bring millions back into the local economy.
VITA is a federally sponsored community based program that offers free, high quality tax preparation services to low to moderate income taxpayers, the elderly, people with disabilities and people with limited English speaking proficiency.
Volunteers are offered an option of flexible hours and with over 13 sites, the choice of locations. Sites are located in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty Counties. In addition to tax preparers, NIA is also recruiting individuals to help with front desk and the intake process.
To join us as a volunteer, please call Jackie Harris at 912-447-5577 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
