Tax Return Volunteers Wanted!

In California, did you know that nearly $1 billion in Earned Income Tax Credit dollars goes unclaimed each year? Some taxpayers are not claiming the credit simply because they don’t know about it. Would you like to participate in a program that assists low- to middle-income individuals with simple tax returns free of charge and helps eligible workers claim the tax credit?

We partner with the IRS to administer the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs throughout California. If you are interested in becoming a VITA/TCE coordinator or volunteer, unpaid but “fully rewarded,” please contact Sherry Zedlitz at To learn more about VITA/TCE volunteer assistance in your community, please go to and search for volunteer programs. Also, visit the AARP website at to learn more about the TCE program.
