Staff report

AARP Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax counseling and preparation service, is seeking volunteers to assist in tax preparation. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome; you do not need to be an AARP member or a retiree to volunteer. Last year, on a nationwide basis, the Tax-Aide Program assisted 2.9 million taxpayers while here in Nevada we assisted 28,000.

Tax counselors receive free tax training and become IRS certified by passing the IRS exam. They help customers one-on-one at tax sites in Carson City, Dayton, Gardnerville and Minden. It’s a great way to learn new skills and to be involved in your community.

Volunteers are reimbursed on a limited basis for qualified program-related expenses. For more information about becoming a local AARP Tax-Aide volunteer, call Gil Yanuck at (775) 841-3675.
