We are recruiting volunteers to help prepare income tax returns for those who are eligible for DABC services (households making less than $57,000 per year, or individuals making less than $35,000 per year). Due to COVID-19, the DABC is currently operating from a single free tax site at 2475 W 26th Ave, Denver, CO 80211

The DABC is normally open for VITA tax preparation services from late January through October 15th each year, and for LITC services year round. DABC provides free VITA training for all volunteers, so no prior tax preparation experience is required.

Volunteer roles
There are several roles you can fill as a DABC volunteer:

  • Front Desk or Translator: Welcome clients, perform eligibility screening, help clients prepare relevant paperwork for free tax preparation, discuss financial opportunities with clients, and assist with administrative tasks.

  • Tax Assistor: Get trained by DABC staff, who will assist you in completing a simple certification from the IRS to prepare tax returns, then help clients get all the tax credits for which they are eligible. We use a simple and professional tax software. Experienced Tax Assistors may be asked to Quality Review other Tax Assistors.

  • Site Coordinator: Help other volunteers while managing the flow of taxpayers through the process of tax preparation and quality review. Support volunteers by answering questions on tax law and tax software, and provide guidance to ensure that every tax return is efficiently and accurately prepared. You must have volunteered with VITA before, for at least one tax season.

  • DABC Board of Directors Member: DABC is also seeking volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors to help govern and direct the future of the organization. Learn more about that role and our current openings.  

How it works:

After attending a short training session (generally 3-8 hours), you will be able to complete an online certification through an IRS website. Then you can assist any time from January through October.
