United Way of Erie County has various volunteer opportunities available.
Ohio Benefit Bank
United Way of Erie County has been working with Second Harvest Food Bank and Erie Huron CAC to recruit and train counselors for the Ohio Benefit Bank Tax Assistance/Tax Clinic Program. Ohio Benefit Bank Tax Counselors assist clients in preparing their income taxes at no charge. Volunteers will help individuals file their income tax returns and assist them in e-filing in as few as 7 days. This may be accomplished through one-on-one sessions or at Community Tax Clinics.
Volunteers are required to attend a training program prior to becoming a tax counselor to learn how to use the Ohio Benefit Bank software. Volunteers do not need to be an expert in tax preparation or the IRS tax codes. United Way of Erie County anticipates hosting tax preparation sites during the tax season.
Training programs will be scheduled in December and January.
