Goodwill Seeks Volunteers for FREE TAX Preparation Program

Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois is seeking volunteers for its GoodTAXES program located in the Rockford regional area and in DeKalb. The GoodTAXES Program offers free income tax preparation services for low-to-moderate income area residents from January to April each year. You can help! The program is entering its 8th year at Goodwill.

There are many different roles available at Goodwill’s tax sites, and no experience is necessary to become a volunteer. All training is provided free of charge. Volunteer opportunities include tax preparers, greeters, customer service assistants, and interpreters. Volunteering hours are flexible and include days, nights, and weekends. Training takes place starting in November and December, so sign up today!

The volunteers are critical to the success of this initiative and we are so grateful for their time and talents! Our volunteers are rewarded with a great deal of experience, gratitude from our staff and customers, and the rewards of assisting their fellow community members. Last year, our volunteers helped complete over 2,600 returns and bring back over $3.5 million dollars to our local community. Hardworking families are counting on you to help them this coming tax season!

To volunteer or to get more information, call Goodwill today at (815) 987-6205 or email vita@goodwillni.org.

Goodwill’s GoodTAXES Program is supported by the United Way of the Rock River Valley and the IRS.
