AARP Tax-Aide program in need of volunteers

Volunteers are needed for the annual AARP Tax-Aide, a free, volunteer-run program that provides tax assistance and preparation services for low- to middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those 60 and older. Volunteers are particularly needed to assist with electronic filing of returns.

Volunteers who prepare returns must attend a free, weeklong training course in January, pass a written exam and commit to work a minimum of four hours a week during the tax season, Feb. 1 through April 15, at one of tax assisting sites in Hernando County. Those interested in volunteering should have basic computer skills and experience in preparing their own returns.

Other volunteer positions that do not require tax training are available. Bilingual volunteers are also needed.

Individuals of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is Nov. 30. Contact Wanda at [email protected] or call Joan at (352) 200-5790.
