The volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program helps Schuylkill County residents with low to moderate incomes file their tax returns. Volunteer Tax Assistors provide free, basic, computerized tax return preparation to taxpayers who are eligible to claim the earned income tax credit (EITC). All volunteers will be trained and tested on IRS software. All training is FREE. Volunteers are needed to provide assistance during the tax season (January 25 -through April 9, 2016) at various local sites.
No accounting experience needed, time commitment is up to the volunteer, evening and daytime volunteer times are available. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Marie Maurer at Schuylkill Community Action at 570-622-1995.
