Volunteer as tax preparer

For more than 35 years in the Gorge, the AARP Tax-Aide program has been operating with volunteers to prepare taxes for senior citizens and low- to moderate-income persons, free of charge. Volunteers are needed to join the program.

If you don’t seize up at the thought of preparing income taxes, and kind of enjoy unique situations, fiddling with numbers, decoding things like tax rules, this might be for you.

There are six days of training in January over a two-week period, usually in The Dalles. After that, passing a test is required for certification. Self-study or online training is also available.

Tax-Aide volunteers work in Hood River, White Salmon and The Dalles and Tygh Valley, with a minimum four-hour-per-week commitment requested.

There is lots of support and collaboration; no one is expected to know it all. Tax-Aide volunteers prepare returns using Tax-wise on IRS-loaned laptops.
