Inside This Issue

Volunteers needed across the country for free tax services


IR-2023-195, Oct. 23, 2023


WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs are currently recruiting volunteers for the upcoming filing season. 

VITA/TCE sites can be found nationwide and prepare millions of tax returns each year for low- to moderate-income taxpayers at no cost. The free tax program serves populations such as rural taxpayers, limited English speakers and senior citizens. 

Each year thousands of volunteers are able to help their community and gain invaluable professional experience. No experience is necessary to become a VITA or TCE volunteer. Free specialized training is provided by the IRS. Available positions go beyond tax preparation and include:


  • Interpreters
  • Greeters
  • Quality reviewers
  • Marketing specialists
  • Instructors
  • Computer specialists


Volunteers have the option to participate at both in-person and virtual sites. Hours are often flexible with many sites operating at night and on weekends. Finding a nearby free tax help location is easy. They can often be found in libraries, community centers, schools and churches. 

To learn more about becoming a VITA/TCE volunteer, visit IRS Tax Volunteers. Those interested can sign up using the VITA/TCE Volunteer and Partner Sign Up and will be provided a list of available local VITA/TCE sites and invited to a virtual orientation.
