BILLINGS, MT – Are you interested in acquiring new skills and helping people in the Community. Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity? Consider becoming a part of the HRDC Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Team.
Through this program you will become an IRS certified tax preparer and receive no-cost training from IRS tax professionals. Once you have completed your training, you can assist individuals and families in your community with free tax preparation services. VITA targets low to moderate-income earners making less than $55,000. As a volunteer, you will not only learn how to prepare individual tax returns, but will receive cutting-edge instruction on new tax requirements, tax credits, rates, and deductions. In 2017, our VITA team was able to secure over $2.9 million in refunds going back into the community. The VITA program saved taxpayers over a half million dollars in tax preparation fees.
If this sounds interesting and you would like to learn more, go to hrdc7.org or find us on Facebook at VITA HRDC7. If tax preparation is not your thing, HRDC and VITA have other volunteer opportunities.
