other volunteer opportunities exist, including greeter/intake.

No previous tax preparation experience is necessary. All

volunteers will receive training and certification through the IRS.

• All training will be interactive and done in a classroom setting using

computers. This allows for hands on instruction utilizing the same

IRS tax preparation software volunteers will use during tax season.

An instructor will guide all training.

• Training for adequate preparation is 6-8 hours.

• Flexible training dates and times are being offered starting December

2014. Once individuals register to be a volunteer, they will be able to

see the training dates offered and sign up for one.

• VITA Volunteers will be needed January - April 2015

• Volunteers will be encouraged to contribute at least 16 volunteer

hours during the tax season. Flexible shifts are available to include

days, evenings, and weekends.

• Training can also be scheduled on specific days for large groups. For

example, if your organization has at least 10 people that want to train

on the same day, a training date for your group can be arranged.
