Volunteers needed for tax preparation

Volunteer Income Tax Assistant Appointment Schedulers are needed for the upcoming 2018 tax season.

The VITA Appointment Scheduler will pre-screen participants by asking a few simple intake questions to see if they qualify to have their state and federal taxes done by one of our volunteer income tax preparers. Duties include: filling out appointment surveys, scheduling tax appointments and mailing follow-up paperwork. Volunteers may also be asked to make reminder calls for upcoming appointments.

Volunteers should be able to commit to four-hour shifts one to two days a week during the tax season. Appointment schedulers are needed mid-January through mid-March. To become a volunteer in Warren County, call Amy Sabattis at 518-623-3291. To volunteer in Washington County, call Joan Prouty at 518-746-2560.
