VOLUNTEER WITH THE YW 
SPECIAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: 

Assist the YWCA on our Mission to eliminate racism and empower women by becoming a tax volunteer! 

What Is Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)?
VITA is a free tax preparation program that helps low-to-moderate income families (up to $54,000) with tax preparation. Taxpayers are assisted with receiving tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a commonly-overlooked credit that may add more than a month's worth of salary to the individual or family's annual income. During tax season, there are FREE sites across Miami-Dade County. All Sites are staffed by IRS Certified Volunteers.

Get Involved!
Help your community in preparing taxes free of charge by becoming a volunteer with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

You will receive training to provide free tax help for low-to-moderate income families who need assistance preparing their tax returns. Over 90,000 people said yes towards making a difference during the 2015 filing season and prepared over 3.7 million returns at thousands of tax sites nationwide.

We are recruiting for:
* Greeters
* Interpreters
* Tax Preparers
* Site Coordinators
* Quality Reviewers
