With tax season approaching, United Way of Kenosha County is working in partnership with other community organizations to support the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, which provides income tax preparation services for low-moderate income individuals and families.

Volunteers are being recruited to work at VITA sites both in Kenosha and in Salem and will be provided with free training to become an IRS-certified tax preparer. In addition to tax preparation, volunteers are also needed to greet clients, provide interpreter services and organize the tax sites, while others may help assist with the publicity for the VITA program. Help your fellow community by volunteering a few hours per month to prepare taxes for those unable to afford it.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please respond by Jan. 13. You may call 658-4104 or e-mail lmcdonald@kenoshaunitedway.org if you are interested or have questions regarding this volunteer opportunity. This program is brought to you by United Way of Kenosha County and the Kenosha County VITA Coalition.
