The Illinois CPA Society's CPAs for the Public Interest and Ladder Up are recruiting volunteer tax preparers for the 2020 tax season. Volunteers offer free federal and state tax return preparation for low-income individuals and families throughout Illinois.
Ladder Up will be offering three different service models this year:Virtual:
Clients will upload their tax documents to be prepared and reviewed by volunteers completely remotely from their homes.Drop-off:
These sites will serve as locations where clients can receive assistance preparing their tax documents for virtual completion by volunteers. Ladder Up will need volunteers to staff drop-off sites to assist with reviewing clients' tax situations and ensuring they have all necessary information/documents for preparation.In-person:
Clients will schedule an appointment to have their return completed while they remain at the tax site. Ladder Up will need volunteers who feel comfortable serving at in-person sites. All appropriate safety precautions will be in place.
Help others and give back by registering with Ladder Up today! All volunteer training will be completed virtually this year starting in late November.Sign up right here
