Do you want to be a SUPERHERO to some of your hard-working friends and neighbors?
United Way of Collier and the Keys is offering a remote volunteer opportunity with the VITA free tax preparation program for households with limited incomes in Collier and Monroe counties.
Volunteers will work remotely from home, as IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers, with oversight and assistance from the VITA Program Coordinator. Volunteers help fellow residents maximize their tax return so they are better able to provide for their families, thereby making our community more affordable. Bilingual volunteers are especially appreciated.
No tax experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn, grow and serve. After attending a free, remote training and passing the online certification, volunteers remotely assist taxpayers prepare and file their taxes, January – April, using the cloud based IRS software, TaxSlayer, and videoconferencing with clients.
The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program is designed to assist qualified taxpayers with completion of their annual tax returns and to ensure that limited income families receive every available benefit. UWCK is pleased to offer the VITA program through a grant from Volunteer Florida.
