Last year, 1,000 low- and moderate-income taxpayers and seniors in the Paterson area relied on IRS certified volunteers and interns to prepare and file their tax returns - FOR FREE! You too, can offer invaluable help to those in need by training to be a local volunteer tax preparer. TRAINING IS FREE AND FUN.
Volunteers are needed in Paterson to bring this vital service to the community from Feb to April. Last year 30 volunteers and interns staffed sites around the city with daytime, evening and week-ends hours. Free parking for volunteers.
"One of the most interesting volunteer opportunities I've ever had. I know that I am helping others and really making a difference," commented a volunteer after last year's tax season. This highly rewarding volunteer activity also offers you an opportunity to learn a new skill. You will be certified by the IRS to electronically prepare and file Federal & state Income Tax returns. No tax experience necessary.
If you are a college student, we can work with your school so that you can receive internship credit.
