Help Working Families. Build Your Resume. Volunteer at Tax Time!

The Campaign for Working Families invites you to join the team of over 700 volunteers to save working families thousands of dollars in tax preparation fees. Learn how to provide free tax preparation or help in other ways!

As a volunteer, you can gain valuable skills and work experience that can enhance your resume. Volunteer tax preparers receive professional training and IRS certification.
