Every year, the IRS initiates programs to assist people who require help in preparing their tax submissions. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs are programs where the IRS solicits help from volunteers who want to learn about taxes and help others by preparing their federal income tax returns. The aim of these programs is to provide free tax return preparation assistance for low-to-moderate income taxpayers, senior citizens, people with disabilities and taxpayers who are not conversant in English.

IRS spokesman Gregg Semanick says, “The IRS and its partners are once again looking for volunteers that are interested in taking a little time to learn about taxes and then helping others by preparing federal income tax returns for free. Volunteers are certified to prepare simple tax returns for people whose incomes are $50,000 or less. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to volunteer. There is a role for anyone who is interested and wants to help.”
