Volunteer to Help
Hardworking Families

Provide free tax preparation to low-income families through the Regional Earned Income Tax Credit Collaborative. Ensure families claim all available credits while saving them from paying tax preparation fees and refund anticipation-loan interest rates.

  • No previous experience necessary - returns are prepared with the assistance of easy-to-use computer software.
  • Learn a valuable skill - volunteers receive IRS tax preparation training and certification.
  • Make a high impact - you can help a family receive up to $5,666 in Earned Income Credit while helping them avoid high preparation or filing fees.
  • Flexible enough for any schedule - Volunteer days, nights or weekends at one of our 30+ tax prep sites in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana.
  • Trainings involve approximately six hours of classroom time in addition to the few hours it takes to certify on-line.

The Earned Income Tax Credit is the nation's largest anti-poverty program and benefits hard working individuals who don’t make very much money to support themselves or their families. Last year, volunteers filed over 15,758 tax returns, resulting in more than 18.6 million in refund dollars – all of which goes back to our community.
Not interested in preparing taxes? Volunteers can also serve as a greeter/screeners or translators at one of our tax sites.
