United Way seeks tax-preparation volunteers

United Way is seeking volunteers to participate in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and AARP tax programs next year.

The VITA and AARP tax programs offer free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and taxpayers with limited English-speaking skills who need assistance in preparing their own returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

If you are interested in training to become a VITA representative, contact Joy King at jking@uwbarthco.org.
