Volunteers Needed for Free Tax Prep Service

VITA offers a free alternative to predatory commercial tax preparers with high fees.

Volunteer your time this tax season with Camden Asset Network’s VITA program and help bring cash back to families in need! The Camden Asset Network (CAN) is seeking volunteer tax preparers for the upcoming 2013 tax filing season. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free tax preparation so low-income filers can access valuable tax refunds and credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. By volunteering just 3 - 4 hours a week, at our sites across Camden you alone can return over $30,000 to local families and save them money on commercial tax preparer fees.   No experience in tax preparation is required. Free IRS-certified tax training is provided through free, convenient online trainings, supplemented by classroom sessions on Tax Law and TaxWise Software. Volunteering your time with CAN’s VITA program is an investment in your local families and communities.   For more information on volunteering with the Camden Asset Network, please email Ellen Steele at esteele@pathwayspa.org or call 610-543-5022 ex. 235.
