Volunteers Needed for Tax Prep Assistance at Ada Jenkins
During Tax Season 2023 (February 4-April 15, 2023), the Ada Jenkins Center will again host two program sites — in Davidson and Huntersville — for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE).
Volunteer greeters, interpreters, and tax preparers are needed at both locations and, per Internal Revenue Service policy, must become certified by completing the required training. In-person training will be held on Saturday, January 7 and Saturday, January 14 from 8:30am – 4:30pm at the Ada Jenkins Center. Virtual training sessions are available as well.
Volunteers will assist neighbors with incomes of $60,000 or less prepare their taxes for free. The locations will be open from Feb. 4-April 15, 2023. Volunteers will be needed on Saturdays from 8:45am-3pm (approximately), though they do not need to be available every Saturday.
In 2022 Ada Jenkins Center’s VITA volunteers assisted 173 households, saving them a total of $43,250 in tax preparation fees.
