 AARP TaxAide
 
 SEEKING TAX ASSISTANCE VOLUNTEERS
 
 
TaxAide, the free income tax assistance program sponsored by the AARP Foundation and the IRS, is seeking volunteers for the coming tax season. 
 
TaxAide volunteers answer questions, prepare and file returns for low to moderate income taxpayers and seniors from February 1 to April 15 at various sites in the Capital District. 
 
Volunteers typically participate one day per week, with flexible schedules to accommodate volunteer availability.
 
No experience is required, but computer experience is helpful for tax counseling.  Volunteers who do not wish to prepare returns are also needed to greet taxpayers, review documents, confirm appointments by phone, or assist with computer hardware/software matters. Training is provided for all positions. Volunteers may be reimbursed for a moderate level of necessary travel expenses.
