The Free Tax Preparation Program is in need of volunteers to train as tax preparers, greeters, and interpreters. The Free Tax Preparation Program connects low-income residents in the Suncoast Region with volunteer tax preparers who file their tax returns for free. This is a great opportunity for you, your friends, family, or co-workers to help low-to-moderate income households receive free tax preparation services and tax advantage of the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit. There are several volunteer locations throughout Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, and Sarasota counties offering day, evening, and weekend opportunities.


Tax Preparers provide a service which benefits over 16,000 working families in the Tampa Bay area by accurately preparing and e-filing tax returns.

Greeters welcome taxpayers as they arrive, verify that they have all required documents and information, and ensure that they fill out the necessary intake forms.

Interpreters can assist at various levels – prepare taxes, greet taxpayers or interpret only. Bilingual volunteers are needed at all sites, with a higher need in areas such as Plant City, Ruskin, and West Tampa.
Volunteers will receive between four and thirty hours of training (depending on the volunteer position selected) and are encouraged to contribute at least four (4) hours per week at one of the free tax locations during the tax filing season from mid-January through mid-April.
