Last week I signed up with a VITA program to help low to moderate income people with filing their tax returns.
I received an email back and train during the month of October. For ten weeks starting in February I’ll commit myself to a minimum of two hours a week in assistance. Overall that in not a lot of time, but I’ll definitely have to juggle some things to fit everything in. I have been doing my own and H’s basic taxes for several years, using the forms not software.
I do receive 8 hours of leave each year that I can use for community service, I am going to look into whether this qualifies or not. That would certainly help with all the training I need to get done in October.
I have been feeling the urge to get involved in more community service, besides the Harvest Gathering (I am the Treasurer) committee at work. I thought this might be a good start.
