AARP Tax-Aide Volunteer Opportunity (Seasonal)

If you have prepared personal income taxes in the past, and are looking for a rewarding way to use these skills, consider volunteering with the Hudson Valley CA$H Coalition and AARP Foundation Tax-Aide in several tax sites throughout Hudson Valley, including at the Kent Public Library. Through the Coalition, low and moderate-income residents can get the refunds and credits they may not have known about and have their tax returns prepared and e-filed at no cost. Other volunteer support roles are available, free training is provided. For more information or to volunteer, contact Linda Eddy at 845.475.7500 or leddy@dutchesscap.org or visit us at at our website by clicking HERE.
