Over the last two months, we talked about the difference between your earnings being reported to you on a W2, 1099-NEC, or no form at all, and we gave you some tips for ways you might be able to reduce your tax liability. This month, we want to share with you how you can help us.
Dedicated volunteers are needed to help VITA provide free tax preparation services to people with low to moderate income; age 60 and older; disabilities; and limited English proficiency. By helping working families take advantage of programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), you can help bring in millions of dollars to the local community — dollars to help families jumpstart their savings, reduce debt, and invest in our community. This past tax season, we saved taxpayers more than $500,000 in tax preparer fees and prepared more than 1,700 returns.
We need seasonal volunteers to serve as greeters, interpreters, and tax preparers. We will train you and you will work with a dedicated group of volunteers who will offer support and guidance. Our tax season runs from late January through mid-April, but we begin our training in the late fall.
Our goal for the next tax season is to offer tax services in Spanish at as many of our sites as possible.
Join our United Way of the Lowcountry/VITA booth at the Latin Music Festival on October 16. Have your questions answered about taxes, saving your money as well as ITINs, W-2s, and 1099-NECs.
