Fairfax County is seeking volunteers to help prepare tax returns for low-income families.
The Volunteers Income Tax Assistance (VITA) in partnership with the Fairfax County Department of Family Services needs volunteers from January to mid-April 2013 to prepare taxes, greet and screen customers, serve as translators, and provide IT support at library sites or act as a site coordinator.
According to their website, each volunteer is needed for three to six hours a week. All volunteers will be trained in how to use TaxWise and Tax Law software. The training is free. Volunteers will be certified as a tax preparer by the IRS upon successful completion of their training.
To apply to become a volunteer, interested persons can register online.
