MFS-CASH Oregon, in partnership with AARP Tax-Aide Foundation and the IRS VITA program, is offering a free tax preparation program to assist those most likely to overlook their eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Economic Impact Payments.
The organization is currently looking for tax prep volunteers to prepare accurate returns with ongoing support from fellow volunteers.
Volunteers do not need any knowledge or experience with tax preparation. To ensure comfort with and knowledge of the tax services they will be providing, MFS-CASH Oregon has developed a comprehensive curriculum, provided at no cost and completely virtual.
Training for volunteers is available through January in a combination of self-directed learning and webinars. The 40+ hour training informs volunteers of the tools needed to prepare taxes and the knowledge to pass IRS certification.
Once certified, volunteers will be assigned to one of 50 physical tax preparation sites based on interest and availability. There will be virtual/remote options.
During tax season, February 1-April 15, volunteers must contribute a minimum of four hours per week and have access to high speed internet.
