TAX AIDES: CPAs REACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY.
Tax-Aide instructors train volunteers to help prepare simple tax returns. They also administer and grade an IRS test to gauge readiness.
According to Frank Kafer, Tax-Aide district coordinator for the Contra Costa County region, there is a statewide shortage of qualified volunteer instructors. "We team teach in pairs. In my district, I need 10 instructors for five classes that will train 150 volunteers."
The instructing commitment consists of a two-day workshop (hotel, meal and mileage expenses reimbursed) in early December, and possibly one district meeting.
The IRS gives some CE credits and requires potential instructors to pass a relatively easy test. Classes run five days (40 hours) in the second or third week of January.
If interested, e-mail Kafer by the end of October at Tax_Aide@Email.com. He will put you in touch with the coordinator nearest you.
