United Way Seeks Volunteers to Assist in Free Tax Preparation

The  United Way of Indian River County is seeking volunteers to prepare tax returns for low- to middle-income individuals and families through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
VITA volunteers do more than just prepare people’s taxes. They play a critical role in ensuring that low-income workers access valuable tax credits without paying any fees.
Benefits of becoming a VITA volunteer include: free IRS training and materials to help you develop a lifelong skill and build your resume; a variety of locations in Vero Beach, Sebastian and Fellsmere; dates and times convenient to your schedule; ongoing support; Continuing Education Credits for eligible volunteers; a Certificate of Recognition and Letter of Appreciation from the IRS at the end of the tax season; and the personal satisfaction you’ll gain from providing an important service to your community. Volunteers of all backgrounds are welcome. Retirees, students and individuals with experience in finance are encouraged to participate. The tax software guides you every step of the way and volunteers are protected under the Volunteer Protection Act.
