PHOENIX – The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program is recruiting volunteers for sites all across Utah, from Tremonton south to St. George, Park City and Heber, to help neighbors and other community members to prepare and electronically file their annual income tax returns.
Tax-Aide volunteers provide free tax help to low-to-moderate income taxpayers with special attention to those age 60 or older.
Volunteers are needed to electronically prepare both federal and State of Utah tax returns, to greet people, maintain computers and associated equipment, manage the workflow and volunteers and occasionally act as a translator for non-English speakers.
Training will be offered soon – in December and January. Tax law instruction and training materials will be provided at no cost. Volunteers are asked upon completion of training, to volunteer three to four hours a week at a near-by site during the tax season.
Free tax help sites open to the public beginning in February and operate through tax day, Tuesday, April 15, 2014.
