Are you interested in making a difference in your community? Meet new people? Do you want to learn how to do taxes, for free? You can start today by registering to become a volunteer tax preparer! By becoming a volunteer, you can: prepare taxes for low to moderate income individuals/families, all senior citizens, people with disabilities, or those who speak limited English.

There might be a couple of questions running through your head.

Do I have to be a CPA to prepare taxes?
