Your Assistance is Needed in Promoting Financial Stability in DC During the 2017 Tax Preparation Season

If you care about promoting financial stability for hard-working families and providing high quality free tax assistance in the Greater DC Area, our partner in the DC Earned Income Tax Credit Campaign, Community Tax Aid (CTA), has volunteering opportunities for you.

Volunteer registration will open in early December and CTA is recruiting volunteers for tax sites in Washington, DC; New Carrollton, Silver Spring and Rockville in Maryland; and Arlington County and City of Alexandria in Virginia.

Although there are many ways to get involved as a volunteer at one of CTA’s tax sites, we are especially looking for volunteers interested in serving as Client Coordinators.  Client Coordinators help provide a better experience for our clients and greatly increase the efficiency of our tax sites.

Client Coordinators perform an initial screening for eligibility and help clients start the required intake documents. After the returns are completed, Client Coordinators review outcomes with the taxpayers, provide the taxpayers with copies of their completed returns, and ensure that all their questions are answered. This is a great opportunity to interact with interesting and inspiring clients and to help CTA increase its capacity to serve our community.

For more information on volunteering opportunities, please contact CTA by phone at (202) 547-7773 or by email at volunteer@communitytaxaiddc.org.
