Jack volunteers in the Senior/Active Adult Program during Income Tax season. He started volunteering his services over 8 years ago at the Kenneth Aitken Senior Center. As a tax volunteer Jack goes through a week-long training every January to learn new tax laws and updates on computer software taught by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and the IRS. He then must pass a complicated test at the advanced preparer level in order to volunteer.
Jack normally volunteers over 100 hours in just 4 months per year. He has helped hundreds of low to moderate income seniors and families prepare their income taxes through the years. He is a highly sought after preparer for his attention to detail and extensive tax law knowledge.
Being a volunteer in the tax program is a very demanding job
that requires face to face work with participants who must file their Federal
and State Income Tax Returns.
