AARP Tax-Aide volunteers needed

To volunteer, go to

Are you looking for a rewarding opportunity to make a difference in your community and learn valuable skills at the same time?

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide — the nation’s largest free tax preparation and assistance service for low to moderate income individuals — is now seeking volunteers for the 2019-2020 season. You don’t have to be an AARP member to volunteer and you don’t have to have any experience doing taxes. You just have to have a desire to help your neighbors.

Tax volunteers receive IRS-certified tax training in December and January. After completing your training, volunteers work a few hours a week from late January through mid-April at sites throughout the Kitsap Peninsula. Normal activities involve interacting with clients, assessing their needs and preparing their tax returns. Even if you don’t have accounting or tax preparation experience, becoming a tax volunteer may be right for you, if you enjoy working with people and numbers.

To volunteer, go to Complete the Tax-Aide Volunteer Application and submit it. You will be contacted by someone in the area with more information.
