CUA – 2nd Annual Volunteer Tax Assistance Project seeks volunteers

November 5, 2013

Are you interested in helping low-income taxpayers prepare their returns at CUA Law this spring?

If so, you may become trained to serve as a Tax Preparer as part of the Volunteer Tax Assistance Program! Tax Preparers interview customers and prepare their federal and state income tax returns. While helpful, Preparers do not need to have significant individual income tax preparation experience – all Preparers will be trained and subsequently certified by the IRS. More info is available here: http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Free-Tax-Return-Preparation-for-You-by-Volunteers 

Paul Kurth with the Consumer Protection Project at CCLS plans to coordinate the second annual VITA project at CUA Law next semester.  

Volunteers must be willing to:

1. Participate in a training program to take place in January to become certified; and

2. Commit to at least one shift (generally 3-4 hours) per week during tax season (February – April) at CUA Law. Best efforts will be made to accommodate students’ schedules.

Please sign up on the Law School Pro Bono TWEN page, if you can reasonably predict that you’ll be willing and able to make the above commitment and I’ll be sure to include you on forthcoming updates.
