Tax Preparation Volunteers Needed

The Center for Economic Progress is looking for volunteers to work one-on-one with low-income families to help them move toward financial security. Volunteer opportunities are available right here in Uptown at Truman College.

To volunteer at a tax preparation site:

  • No experience is necessary—choose a position to fit your current skills or learn something new.
  • All trainings are provided; classes run in January.
  • Volunteers are asked to commit 20 hours (averaging to a few hours a week) between January and April.
  • Our Uptown tax site, located at Truman College at 1145 W. Wilson, is open in the evening Monday through Thursday and in the daytime on Saturday.

Volunteer positions available as…

  • Tax preparers: Work with clients to file federal and state tax returns and provide counseling on tax credits and forms.
  • Tax site assistants: Perform essential non-tax-preparation activities, including client intake, translating and educating on basic banking options available on site.

See why over 1,100 volunteers dedicated last winter to serving 28,000 families statewide. Register to volunteer, view training schedules and find a site near by clicking here.
