Free tax help available across Kitsap

The Super Bowl is over, which must mean it’s tax time.

As in years past, a small army of volunteers is fanning out across Kitsap to provide free income tax help.

The Tax-Aide program, a joint effort of IRS and AARP, will have stations in Bremerton, Kingston, Port Orchard and Silverdale, and on Bainbridge Island. The service is available to people of all ages.

Volunteers can help tax payers prepare and file their returns, or just answer questions. They’re trained on most the tax law changes for 2014.

Full details, including times and dates for the various assistance locations, are posted below. You can download the PDF or print it out and stick it on your fridge:

Volunteer tax helpers needed


blog.taxhelpAARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking for volunteers to provide free tax help during the upcoming income tax season.

You don’t need to be an AARP member or have an accounting degree to pitch in. Training will be provided for volunteers of all experience levels.

Here’s the full notice:

Looking for a rewarding opportunity to make a difference in Kitsap County? 

 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide — the nation’s largest free tax preparation and assistance service — is now seeking volunteers for the 2014 tax season. You don’t have to be an AARP member to volunteer and you don’t have to have any experience doing taxes. You just have to have a desire to help your neighbors.

 Tax volunteers receive free tax training in December and January, in association with the IRS. Once trained, they work a few hours a week from late January through mid-April, interacting with clients by filling out tax returns. Even if you don’t have accounting or tax preparation experience, becoming a tax volunteer may be right for you, if you have a knack for working with numbers.

 To volunteer, go to www.aarp.org/taxvolunteer. About half way down the page you will see “Become a Volunteer for Tax Aide”. Fill out the on-line application.

Get the joy and satisfaction of helping others by applying to join the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteer team today. Your expertise will be appreciated more than you can imagine.
