Are You a Tax Whiz? Make a Difference!

The Center for Economic Progress is looking for volunteers interested in building skills, meeting new people, and working one-on-one with low-income families to help them move toward financial security. To volunteer at our tax preparation sites: • No experience is necessary—choose a position to fit your current skills or learn something new. • All trainings are provided; classes run in January. • Volunteers are asked to donate 20 hours between January and April. • About 30 community sites are available throughout Illinois. Volunteer positions available: • Tax preparers: Work one-on-one with clients to file federal and state tax returns and provide counseling on tax credits and forms. • Tax site assistants: Perform essential non-tax-preparation activities, including client greeting and screening, translating and/or administrative duties. See why over 1,200 volunteers dedicated last winter to serving 33,000 families statewide! View training schedules, find a site near you, and register to volunteer by clicking here.
