All the training you need is online and can be done at your own pace. We make it so anyone, regardless of experience level, can serve at a tax site.

During the tax season, we are in over 15 communities and tax sites offer both evening and weekend hours. You can make an impact in your community in as little as one shift per week from February to April.

*Be part of an experienced team that makes a real impact

Center for Economic Progress tax volunteers have been creating change for over 25 years, serving tens of thousands of families around Illinois and returning over half a billion dollars to working people.
