Free Income Tax Preparation Program (VITA)

Join hundreds of volunteers from Monroe County and make a difference in your community.

You can volunteer for as little as 3 hours a week!!

Since C.A.S.H. is about more than just preparing tax returns, there are a variety of ways to participate as a volunteer during tax season. No experience is necessary and all training is provided, along with on-site support.  Here’s how you can help as a volunteer:

  • Front Desk Manager: greet clients, help them with paperwork, schedule appointments, and help them navigate through the C.A.S.H. site.  Your warm welcome will ease the anxiety of new C.A.S.H. clients, and your organizational skills will keep things running smoothly for everybody. (2hr training)
  • CASH Advisor: help clients get organized to see the Tax Preparer, chat with them about their financial challenges, and provide information about resources they can use.  Once you experience the thrill of helping somebody discover a life-changing opportunity, you’ll be hooked! (4hr training)
  • Tax Preparer: prepare Federal and NY State income tax returns, with easy-to-use software provided by the IRS.  It’s always fun to tell somebody they’re coming into money, and the typical C.A.S.H. client receives a payment of $2,000. (20hr IRS certification training)


Are you intrested in an Internship, CO-OP, Service Learning or volunteer opportunity?

C.A.S.H. partners with local colleges and universities to offer unpaid Internship, CO-OP, Service Learning and Volunteer opportunites to studnets in a variety of majors and degree programs. When filling out a volunteer interest form, write " Internship, CO-OP, or Service Learning."


You don’t have any experience?

Don’t worry! C.A.S.H. provides detailed classroom training to prepare you for your volunteer role, including on-the-job training during your first week at the site. We’ll make sure that you are completely qualified and comfortable in your job before expecting you to fly solo. And it doesn’t stop there. During every shift, patient and knowledgeable veterans are always on hand to answer your questions and help you.
