AARP Foundation looking for volunteers for 2012 Tax-Aide program

Published 5:45 pm Friday, October 21, 2011

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is seeking volunteers for the 2012 tax season.
To be a volunteer, you don’t have to be an AARP and you don’t have to have any experience in tax preparation.
Volunteers receive free tax preparation training offered in early January 2012 in Hendersonville, N.C.
Training includes four days of classroom seminar sessions and two days of computer lab training at the Blue Ridge Community College.
Once training sessions are completed, volunteers are required to pass an examination to become a certified AARP Tax-Aide.
Trained and certified volunteers interact with clients by providing assistance and tax preparation via computer format with working hours normally 9a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each Wednesday beginning February 2012 through April 11, 2012.
Software and computers are provided by the AARP Foundation and the Internal Revenue Service.
To volunteer or to obtain additional information, contact Ronald R. Peters at 828-625-8820 or email at
