The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is recruiting volunteers for sites throughout Arizona to serve as greeters, client facilitators and tax counselors. Training will be in December or January. The sites are open to the public from Feb. 1, through April 16, 2012. It is not necessary to be a member of AARP to be a Tax-Aide volunteer.

Last year in Arizona, the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide served 116,811 clients by filing more than 94,606 tax returns. The service is free of charge and is targeted to seniors and low income families.

There are many volunteer positions available, such as a greeter who checks clients in and answers the phone to make appointments; the client facilitator reviews clients' paperwork and ensures that all needed paperwork is present; the tax counselor inputs data into the tax return software, and the quality reviewer reviews the completed return. In addition, technical coordinators are needed to setup and maintain computers and printers, as well as site coordinators to organize and oversee individual tax sites.

Locations and shifts vary throughout the state. Volunteers are expected to work four hours a week for the 10-week tax season, or a minimum of 40 hours if unable to work the full 10 weeks.

To sign up, call Fran Molleur at (480) 988-6557 or go online to the AARP Volunteer Portal at https://volunteers.aarp.org.
