Do you like to help people? Are you looking for something to do during the winter months? How about becoming a Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) volunteer! The Tri-County United Way VITA Coalition in Washington, Warren and Northern Saratoga Counties is seeking volunteers for the 2019 tax filing season. No experience is required; all volunteers will receive free instruction along with training and certification materials necessary to prepare basic tax returns. VITA volunteers are trained to assist moderate-low income individuals and families to electronically file their personal tax returns.
Training sessions begin in November and include the use of electronic filing software supplied by the IRS. We have tax sites throughout Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties and volunteer hours are flexible day and/or evening hours in your local community.
For more information about the VITA program call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County at 518-623-3291 ask for Amy Sabattis. You can also sign up through the Tri-County United Way at 518-793-3136 ask for JoAnna Sheridan. To volunteer in Washington County contact Joan Prouty 518-746-2560.
