  ASCEND SF Bay Area chapter Community Service Event – Tax-Aid Income Tax Preparation for 2013 Tax Season
ASCEND invites you to give back to the community by becoming a volunteer with our community partner, Tax-Aid during the 2013 tax season. Tax Aid is a501(c)3nonprofit organization founded in 1988 by a coalition of accountants and lawyers. Its mission is to provide free income tax preparation to low-income families in the Bay Area at 27 locations. Join us for their 25th year of serving the community!

Tax expertise is helpful, but there are also jobs that don't require any technical knowledge.  In addition to tax preparers, we need:
•Client greeters
•Bi-lingual screeners
•Computer technicians
•Foreign language translators

Volunteers must
attend 1 two-hour tax update training class in San Francisco, Mountain View, San Jose or San Rafael (with 2 hours CPE credits) and 1 computer lab training (at Golden Gate University) at 536 Mission St. in SF. Must volunteer for a minimum of two sessions. Most Tax-Aid volunteers work about 8-12 hours over a few weeks.

ASCEND selected locations with sizable Asian populations that are easily accessible for our members in San Francisco, Peninsula, East Bay, North Bay and South Bay to volunteer at.
