With the help of volunteers, AARP Midshore Tax-Aide offers free tax-filing help to those who need it most. We’re looking for compassionate and friendly individuals to join our team of local volunteers in Talbot, Caroline, Queen Anne’s and Kent counties for the upcoming tax season.

This year we are experiencing a large growth in our program and need several NEW volunteers in all four counties. You’ll receive training and continued support in a welcoming environment. Ask any current volunteer with our program and they will readily share with you how easy it is to volunteer and learn new skills. Our program helps many different people including seniors, people with disabilities, those with moderate incomes and those with limited English skills.

Here are five good reasons to consider becoming a Tax Aide volunteer.
No previous experience is required. Volunteers receive specialized training.
Volunteers are also needed who have a second language to aid in translation.
Tax Aide use IRS based training materials providing free tax law training.
The hours are flexible. Volunteers generally serve an average of one day a week from the beginning of February until the tax filing deadline date.
As a volunteer, you become part of a program that has helped thousands of people locally prepare federal and state income tax returns. It’s people helping people, it’s that simple.

Not only are tax preparers needed this year, be we also have openings for client facilitator. In this position you welcome the taxpayer, help organize their paper work and manage the overall flow of service.
