AARP is looking for volunteers who want to make a difference in people’s lives and their community. Tax-Aide is a free, volunteer based tax service primarily serving seniors and low-income households and has served the Oakmont community for over 20 years. As a volunteer, you can help people who can’t afford to pay for professional tax preparation – and often miss out on much-needed tax breaks and refunds – get money back in their pockets.
As an AARP volunteer, your commitment is only about 10 weeks from February through April 15, plus some training beginning in late December or January. Right now, the need is greater than our volunteers can handle, so if you are looking for a way to give back to your community, we invite you to check out AARP-Tax Aide
You do not need to be tax pro to volunteer, just be comfortable with computers, and numbers. AARP has other positions available such a client facilitator, which involves greeting clients, checking over their paperwork and scheduling. If you are interested in either position, or want to know more about volunteering with AARP Tax-Aide, call 707-861-1048 or send an email to CA2D10@aarpfoundation.org.
All volunteers for AARP Tax-Aide in 2022 will need to be current on their Covid-19 vaccinations and be prepared to follow county guidelines on masking indoors. AARP will also require all clients to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative Covid test.
