United Way of Pasco County is recruiting volunteers to provide free tax preparation for residents.
There are several different volunteer roles to choose from; no experience is necessary. Volunteers receive full, comprehensive IRS training and become certified to prepare simple returns. Other volunteer roles include greeters, site volunteer schedulers, and technology/computer set-up assistance at the various sites.
The time commitment is minimal, but the satisfaction and personal reward is great. In 2013, volunteers filed more than 7,700 returns bringing more than $8 million in refunds to Pasco residents. The average income of the taxpayers was just $24,694, which means that tax credits and the free tax return preparation service make a meaningful impact in these households.
