Volunteers are needed to prepare Federal and Georgia state tax returns, particularly for people ages 60 and up. All volunteers who will prepare tax returns will need to attend a five-day training program, held in early January. A background in accounting is not a prerequisite; only a willingness to help low to middle income residents and a familiarity with computers. Volunteer opportunities are not limited to tax preparation. Each location also has a person to welcome and organize taxpayers as they come into the site.
