This could very well end up being a very stressful tax season for a lot of people here in the Treasure Valley. Our friends at Boise State are seeing volunteers to help out!

I've been a working "adult" now for sixteen years and tax season is still incredibly stressful, confusing and tax-ing... Get it? Anyway, for those that have a better grasp on how it all works, Boise State is looking for you. It's their IRS Sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA).

According to the University's website, they are:

looking for additional volunteers in order to continue serving those in need. The program helps low-income taxpayers (anyone making less than $57,000 per year) including refugees, veterans, seniors, people with disabilities and students prepare and electronically file their tax returns for free. It’s led by a team of volunteers comprised of faculty, students and community members.

This is a really cool opportunity for someone who understands taxes and would like to get some volunteer hours in this year, helping people who otherwise may struggle with their taxes, often ending up delayed or accruing penalties. Only two to three hours per week are required for new volunteers and you'll be able to make a direct impact on individuals right here in our community, it'll feel really good!

As of now, tax day in the United States is still set for April 15th, but if it's anything like 2020, there's a good chance that the deadline to file your return will end up being pushed back to the summertime.
