The Care Center has been certified by the IRS as a VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) site. This is a free program to help low-and moderate-income individuals and families have their federal and state tax returns prepared and filed electronically at no cost. Our goal is to help our guests by providing professional services that will help them save money.
Responsibilities include preparing and reviewing federal and state income tax returns for low and moderate income individuals and families using software provided by the IRS. Basic knowledge of state and federal tax laws is a plus. Tax preparers must pass an IRS certification exam in order to prepare tax returns. Annual certification is required. Training is provided by the Care Center after you complete the IRS self study program (10-30 hours). Ability to speak Spanish is helpful but not required.
Responsibilities include welcoming guests; ensuring guests brought all necessary documents; and coordinating guest to tax preparer match ups. Qualifications include a pleasant personality and organizational skills. Ability to speak Spanish is helpful but not required.
Willow Creek Community Church’s desire is to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere for all who walk through our doors. We seek qualified volunteers for all ministries by screening potential volunteers through a protection application process. This process includes a background and reference check. You cannot begin serving until you have cleared this process.
