Kent State - VITA - Volunteer Sign UP- Tax Season 2014 (2013 returns)
The program provides tax preparation services to all qualifying individuals, including students, employees, and community members. Qualifying taxpayers with gross income of $51,000 or less may have their returns prepared and e-filed for FREE. We will prepare US tax returns for residents and non residents.
The site will be open for walk-ins or appointments on two Saturdays - March 15 and April 5. Weekday sessions will be available by appointment. Let us know if you have days other than March 15 and April 5 that you would be willing to take appointments.
To prepare returns, you will self-study on-line and then certify on line. Software training will be scheduled individually.
You decide how much time you want to commit. The training and certification for new preparers will take approximately 8-12 hours. Returning preparers must re-certify but it should not take as long. We ask that you commit to a minimum of two Saturdays or 16 hours of preparation between weekdays and Saturdays.
Opportunities are also available that do not require tax preparation certification. We are looking for greeters, clerical assistants, marketing specialists, and receptionists. We will need someone to help with marketing, including frequently updating Facebook and Twitter.
