HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS BY VOLUNTEERING FOR CA$H
CA$H Greater Portland (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) is seeking volunteers to serve as Tax Preparers, Opportunity Guides and Greeters. Tax Preparers receive free training and become an IRS-certified tax preparer—no accounting experience is needed. Opportunity Guides help tax site clients with the intake process by reviewing their tax documents to make sure they have everything they need for filing, reviewing their intake questionnaires, and providing information about local programs and services to support them with improving their financial stability. Greeters welcome tax filers, ask them if they’ve brought their required documents, verify their appointment time, and then direct them to the Opportunity Guide Coordinator for intake.
