The Benefits of Volunteering

Current Volunteer Roles

Tax Preparer

Not an accountant? Not a problem. We give you tax law training and on-site expert support so you can confidently complete accurate returns. All we ask is a minimum commitment of 30 volunteer hours at one of our locations during tax season, and flexible hours are available to fit your busy schedule.

Low-Income Tax Clinic Advisor

If you are a CPA, attorney, or Enrolled Agent, you can help Accounting Aid Society clients who have disputes with the IRS. They need expertise and representation to make appeals, settle disputes, and untangle cases of identity fraud. Dealing with the IRS can be stressful. You can be the expert that makes all the difference.

Preferred Appointment Club

This is a great opportunity for those looking for an introduction to volunteering with Accounting Aid Society. You will make a direct impact in our community by calling existing clients to schedule tax appointments. Each volunteer commits to a 4 hour session that includes training.
