ESR Seeks Forsyth Free Tax Volunteers

Winston-Salem, NC – Forsyth Free Tax, a program of Experiment in Self-Reliance (ESR) is looking for volunteers to help prepare taxes for low to moderate income residents in Winston-Salem/Forsyth during tax season.

Forsyth Free Tax is a part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in which qualified volunteers prepare taxes for free for people making $54,000 a year or less, or $65,000 or less for those who prefer to prepare their taxes online using www.myfreetaxes.com. The program works hard to ensure that every person who qualifies receives the Earned Income Tax Credit and other beneficial credits for low-moderate income residents.

Volunteer roles include Tax Preparer, Quality Reviewer, and Intake Coordinator. No prior experience is necessary. All volunteers must be certified by the IRS. IRS certification training is provided by Forsyth Free Tax and is offered online and in the classroom. Tax preparers are educated on tax credits and help people receive every tax credit for which they qualify.

Volunteers will work at one or more of our community tax sites in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County to provide free tax preparation services during tax season. Volunteer hours can be flexible and can give continuing education credits, if applicable.
