Take Action. Make Opportunity.

The Center for Economic Progress (CEP) provides volunteers with the opportunity to work one-on-one with low-income families to make tax time an opportunity to get ahead. In just one hour, you can provide a family with a tax refund of over $2000.

To volunteer at a tax preparation site:

-       No experience is necessary!

-       All trainings are provided; online training becomes available in November and classroom training takes place in January.

-       Volunteers are asked to commit to just 30 hours total between January and April.

 Volunteer positions available as…

-       Tax preparers: Work with clients to file federal and state tax returns and provide counseling on tax credits and forms.

-       Tax site assistants: Perform essential non-tax-preparation activities, including client intake, translating and educating on basic banking options available on site.

 Last year more than 700 CEP volunteers helped 17,000 families make the most of tax season. Now it's your turn to take action for working families across Illinois.

Next steps: Register to volunteer at www.economicprogress.org/volunteer to view training dates, volunteer locations and schedules.
