Volunteers Needed for Montgomery County’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program for Upcoming Income Tax Season

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, November 1, 2022

The Montgomery County Community Action Agency’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is recruiting volunteers to become IRS-certified VITA tax preparers, schedulers, greeters, interpreters, quality reviewers and site coordinators for the upcoming tax season that runs from January through mid-April. The Internal Revenue Service requires that VITA volunteers be U.S. citizens, legal residents or otherwise reside legally in the U.S. 
 VITA provides free tax help to residents, including ITIN (individual taxpayer identification number) taxpayers, with household incomes of $60,000 or less. The program links clients to valuable tax credits that provide critical support to lower income households.

Volunteers receive free training and can volunteer in Rockville, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg or Wheaton. High school students may receive student service learning hours by volunteering as greeters or schedulers.

 Two virtual information sessions for prospective volunteers will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and 6-7 p.m. Email to register for a session.

 Visit the County’s CASHBACK website or call 240-777-1123 to learn more about volunteering.
