Volunteer Opportunity - Excise your mind!

Moraine Township is considering offering tax preparation assistance for low-income individuals/families in 2016 - if we are able to identify and get volunteers trained.

Interested volunteers will be trained by Internal Revenue Service to help people whose incomes are $49,000 or less with their federal and Illinois individual income tax returns. All training will be online at your own pace and is estimated to take about 40 hours to complete.

Through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling (VITA) for the Elderly Program, volunteers will learn to prepare simple federal and Illinois tax returns and will be asked to donate about 4 hours a week helping at the Township office from mid-January through April 15.

You need not have any accounting experience. All that's required is a desire to help others who cannot prepare their basic tax returns or afford to pay a preparer and the ability to complete the online training. VITA/TCE volunteers participate in training sessions and are tested on what they learned to ensure they can provide accurate assistance.

We will move forward only if we have volunteers interested, so please let us know if you are interested.
