Tax Preparation Volunteers – Sign Up by November 17th
Every year Sacred Heart Community Service prepares hundreds of tax returns for low income customers as a part of the IRS VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. For the 2015 tax year, they were able to secure $2.268 million in refunds for those customers.
Sacred Heart Community Service is looking for more volunteers and we at Holy Spirit Church can help. Volunteers are trained starting in late November and continue through December and January. Actual tax preparation begins the first week of February and ends the week prior to April 15th. Taxes are prepared in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as on Saturday mornings from 10 am through 1 pm Tax returns are prepared at Sacred Heart Community Service.
You do not need to be a trained accountant to participate, but some knowledge of simple income tax guidelines is helpful. If you are interested in volunteering for this much needed service, please contact Luis Campos at Sacred Heart to schedule your training. You can reach him at 408-278-2198 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
You do not need to volunteer for all preparation evenings; you will designate which day(s) you can participate. It is important that you sign up with Luis no later than Thursday, November 17th, to participate.
Thanks for considering this “Time and Talent” opportunity!
