Metro Brief: Prince George’s Community College seeks volunteer tax preparers

Prince George's

On February 2, 2015

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program at Prince George’s Community College is seeking volunteers for its free tax service program. Participants will receive training and valuable experience working with the community during tax season. Free tax services are offered to Prince George’s county individuals with disabilities, elderly taxpayers, low-and limited-income residents and students. ​

Last year, the VITA program prepared more than 2,200 federal and state tax returns, which resulted in in more than $1,220,000 in federal and Maryland tax refunds. Residents saved more than $137,000 in tax preparation fees and received free electronic filing of state and federal tax returns and refunds which are issued within 7-10 days with direct deposit.  

VITA tax preparers will receive free training and materials as well as an Internal Revenue Service volunteer tax preparer certification. Some participants may qualify to earn college credit. Volunteers will be required to attend four training days on Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m. or Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Preparers are asked to commit to a minimum of eight weeks of service on Tuesday evenings or Saturdays.  Register to volunteer at http://bit.ly/1zGymdM

For more information about VITA, call 301.322.0713 or e-mail vita@pgcc.edu.
