Family Services needs VITA volunteers

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, a free tax assistance preparation service provided by the Internal Revenue Service through Family Services in Montgomery County, is seeking volunteers.

Through the VITA program, trained volunteers assist low-to-middle income individuals and families in the preparation and electronic filing of simple income tax forms.

Volunteers complete and file tax forms, greet clients, organize paperwork, and assist with other administrative tasks.

Volunteer tax preparers will receive free instruction and training to become Certified IRS Tax Preparers. Volunteer greeters will welcome clients and assist the VITA site coordinator with administrative tasks. Greeters should be friendly and customer service-oriented.

No experience is necessary. All VITA volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, computer literate, and able to commit to one four-hour volunteer shift per week for the 13-week tax season (January – April 2014). Evening and weekend volunteer shifts are available at two of Family Services’ VITA preparation sites (Pottstown and Eagleville).

For more information, call 610-326-1610 ext. 338 or e-mail
