You can help taxpayers prepare their taxes and claim tax credits by volunteering in the NYC Free Tax Prep program.
No prior experience is necessary to sign up.
You can volunteer to:
- Prepare tax returns
- Greet and perform intake
- Provide language interpretation
If you volunteer to be a tax preparer, you will receive training on basic tax law and how to complete basic tax returns using electronic filing software.
Tax preparers must:
- Be comfortable working with people
- Complete the IRS volunteer certification
- Serve each week or every other week during tax season
