Interested in making a difference in our community? The following is a list of available volunteer opportunities:
Community Volunteer Income Tax Program
Join our vibrant team of Volunteer Income Tax Preparers and Receptionists to help support community members in need. Last year, with the partnership of Canada Revenue Agency, our dedicated volunteers were able to provide over 4,000 free income tax returns to qualifying individuals. This program provided a value of over $300,000 to those who most need the assistance.
Income Tax Preparer
We are looking for individuals who have at least 3 years of experience preparing their own income taxes. Individuals must be comfortable filing simple tax returns.
We are looking for individuals who love interacting with the general public, and who are organized and reliable.
The CVIT program will run from the beginning of March to the end of April. Training will be made available. Volunteers will work out of the United Way office located at 957 Cambrian Heights Drive, Unit 201 Sudbury and are usually asked to work a 4-hour shift. Weekend income tax clinics may be held in outlying areas.
