Volunteer Opportunity: Tax Preparation In Uptown

Do more than make it through the winter—make a difference.  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.

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; online training is available November-January, classroom training will be available on January 5th, 7th, 9th and 12th.
  • 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.
Be part of a mission that returned over $29 million to hardworking Illinois families last year! Register to volunteer, view training schedules and find a site near you at www.economicprogress.org/volunteer.
