Tax Preparation Assistance

AARP sponsors a program that provides free tax preparation assistance for low to moderate income taxpayers and seniors. Tax counselors prepare and file tax returns. There are two pre-requisites for tax counselors – one must have computer skills, and one must have prepared one’s own tax returns in the past. All other tax law and software training that one will need is provided prior to the start of the tax season. Training begins in December/January, and consists of 15 hours of tax law training and 15+/- hours of computer lab session learning the software package that is used and completing practice returns. All training is held at the Ellicott City 50+ Center. The computer labs as defined in the attached training schedule are mentored, and one also has the option of doing the computer practice exercises at home. All candidates receive a package of reference and study materials and plenty of support is available from experienced counselors. All counselors must pass Federal and Maryland State certification exams by 1/20/2020. All volunteers are requested to work a minimum of 40 hours during the tax season (1 February 2020 through 15 April 2020) average of one 4-hour session per week over the 10-week tax season. We have multiple tax preparation locations, and sessions are scheduled for morning, afternoons, evenings and Saturdays, depending on the location. This is an amazing opportunity to provide a valuable community service for which our clients are extremely appreciative. Learn more at http://www.aarp.org/money/taxaide/

Tax Preparation Support Services – Schedulers

AARP sponsors a valuable program that helps a committed group of volunteers to provide much needed free tax return preparation assistance for low income taxpayers with special attention to taxpayers over age 60. Please consider joining our team of schedulers who perform the vital duty of scheduling the tax appointments for return preparation. We need additional schedulers before and during the tax season, which runs from mid-January to mid-April. We use a custom application built using Google Calendar and Google Voice to speak with taxpayers and to schedule appointments, so we do require basic computer as well as people skills. There is a great demand for this service, and our Schedulers help us reach as many people as possible. Training is provided prior to the start of the tax season. Schedulers are asked to commit to at least four hours per week during the tax season and work both at the 50+ centers and/or at home. Learn more at http://www.aarp.org/money/taxaide/
