The United Way of St. Joseph County is recruiting volunteers for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) for this upcoming tax season. There are many ways to volunteer for this program. Among them, volunteers have the opportunity to get certified to be actual tax preparers. This is a great way to build your resume and acquire business skills, as well as way to gain knowledge of how the tax system works. It is also a great opportunity to serve your community. Tax season begins with our Volunteer Open House on Thursday, October 12th at the United Way of St. Joseph County Headquarters located at 3517 E. Jefferson Blvd. in South Bend, IN 46615. Those interested should contact Jackie Lincoln at the United Way, 574- 232-8201 Ex 226 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, about getting involved with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Thank you.
