The Bucks County Opportunity Council is seeking volunteers for its Buck$Back Program, which provides free income tax preparation services for people who need assistance.
The program begin Feb.1 at three tax preparation sites throughout Bucks County.
"Since 2004, Buck$Back volunteers have helped prepare more than 7,000 income tax returns for low-to-moderate-income taxpayers, providing a value of $12.2 million in refunds, credits and fee savings," according to an announcement on Patch.
"The volunteers assist hard-working, motivated families and individuals to obtain crucial refunds that can be used to reduce debt, start a savings account, go back to school, or pay for reliable transportation."
Training is free and available in person or online. The program needs greeters, tax preparers, quality reviewers and phone schedulers. Retired or practicing tax professionals, college students and individuals with no prior tax-preparation experience who complete the training program are welcome.
Sites are located at Foxwood Apartments in Levittown, St. Andrews United Methodist Church in Warminster and the Gathering Pointe Community Center in Perkasie.
