It’s nearly tax time and Catholic Charities Community Services is seeking volunteers to help those in need with free tax preparation. Last year, our volunteers completed 891 returns for vulnerable individuals and families in Arizona. We hope to do even more this year.

We need volunteers as tax preparers, greeters and site coordinators. No experience is necessary. As an IRS-partner Volunteer Income Tax Assistance provider, all training and materials are provided.

Tax preparation services are part of EmpowerU, a Catholic Charities program to help vulnerable individuals and families to permanently improve their financial situations and achieve long-term prosperity through education, skill and resource building, planning and mentorship.

Catholic Charities Community Services helps people of all faiths, backgrounds and abilities and has been serving Central and Northern Arizona since 1933.

We will begin providing free income tax preparation in early February, so we urgently need volunteers now. Interested? Please contact me at davila@cc-az.org or (602) 650-4853.

• Diali Avila is the EmpowerU Volunteer Income Tax Assistance coordinator for Catholic Charities Community Services.
