The Human Response Network (HRN) has been hosting the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program since 2005. This year will be HRN's 19th year of providing a space for this valuable free service in Trinity County.
This program is only possible thanks to the commitment of community volunteers. VITA volunteers are provided office space in the Weaverville office, which includes all the equipment and supplies necessary. Volunteers receive free training on how to prepare tax returns using TaxSlayer software. The training and tax preparation software is provided by the internal Revenue Service.
Volunteer tax preparation helps Americans claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC), federal tax benefits that help workers care for their families, withstand unexpected economic changes, and reduce poverty.
We will not be able to host the VITA program without volunteers to run it. Volunteers are needed to prepare tax returns, conduct quality reviews, and to be able to meet with clients for the drop off and pick up process.
If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, WE NEED YOU.
Our VITA site is run as a drop off/ pick up site. This gives volunteers the ability to prepare taxes at their own pace, setting a schedule that works best for them.
We are seeking volunteers, willing to commit up to 16 hours per week, to provide tax preparation assistance for low-income families and seniors.
For more information, or questions about the program, please contact Jeanetta Trounday at (530) 623-2024 or by email at email@example.com
Volunteer applications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at our business office, located at 111 Mountain View St. Weaverville, CA 96093.
