Q: I see that there are sites that are listed all over Riverside County. If I volunteer in Riverside, do I have to go all the way to Indio or even blythe to file tax returns or train? If you were unable to participate in this last training, you can still perform the tests and download the agreement at your own time by following the instructions here. A: Although there is no deadline for submitting applications, we ask our volunteers to apply as soon as possible for training purposes. Our goal is for all volunteers to be scanned, trained and certified by January 25. As we approach the start of the tax season, training opportunities are limited and volunteers may be invited to train themselves. A: Our tax preparation sites are strategically located throughout the county to maximize the number of individuals and families we serve. However, we do not expect our volunteers to travel long distances. Training is provided at different geographical locations to facilitate and facilitate the participation of volunteers. During the tax season, volunteers are placed on the sites based on preferences on their original application. Q: How does volunteering work? How do I get the information I need to file individual tax returns? Will I interact with taxpayers? A: We ask our volunteers to work at least 35 hours at volunteer sites during the tax season. The 35 hours may consist of some combination of hours worked at the sites; three hours on a Friday and five hours on the following Saturday (and so on) is a perfectly acceptable way to meet the minimum requirement. You can always work more than 35 hours if you wish. Volunteers are invited to certify at the ADVANCED level, but at least you can certify BASIC`s participation.
A: Riverside County employees are excluded from the live scan. All other volunteers must be volunteers in Riverside County, in accordance with Board of Directors regulations. Live Scan`s in Riverside County are executed by the sheriff`s department and submitted to the Department of Justice to investigate certain misdemeanors. In addition, Live Scan cannot be shared by external agencies. For example, if you did a live scan for your task, we can`t use it as space for this volunteer position. Please fill out this form here to download the agreement. A: Once the voluntary application is completed and filed, we will check your registration. Information about the completion of the live scan and background information will then be sent to you to go to the nearest sheriff`s department and pay $42. After the evacuation, the volunteers are then programmed for training and assigned to a site. A: No, you don`t need to submit a CV or already have tax preparation experience. The training is made available free of charge to all volunteers participating in the program.
A: At the beginning of January, you will prepare taxes on one of our sites. If you are posted on the site, you must bring your badge, voluntary reference manuals and voluntary agreement 13615. On site, taxpayers will register on the site with all their information and necessary documents. Packages and forms are distributed to the customer and a screen performs an admission interview to ensure that the customer has provided all the necessary information.
