I was just reminded elsewhere that it's time for my annual solicitation for volunteers to help the poor/elderly and befuddled with their taxes. There are two programs, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE). The IRS oversees both, but TCE is largely administered by AARP.I've been doing VITA for almost 20 years, and it's truly the most rewarding thing I do. You don't need a tax background, they'll train you. You just need to commit to at least 4 hours a week from February 1 to April 15. It's a terrific way to learn some basic tax law and give something to your community.I know I've snagged some volunteers here in past years, and their testimonials would be most welcome.
