Looking for a great volunteer opportunity AND an invaluable job skill to add to your resume? Then come learn more about how to be an AARP Tax-Aide volunteer with CASH Oregon! As an AARP Tax-Aide volunteer, you will become an IRS-certified tax preparer and join a dedicated group of volunteers who assist thousands of low and moderate income taxpayers and seniors to file their taxes.

There will be TWO orientation sessions offered at PSU this year (pick one to attend). These are information sessions that we recommend you attend, however it is not required in order to get involved.
1st session: Monday, November 14 in Neuberger Hall Room 350 from 4 PM – 5:30 PM
2nd session: Tuesday, November 15 in Neuberger Hall Room 222 from 4 PM – 5:30 PM

If you are unable to attend orientation on campus, you can apply directly with CASH Oregon. Please go to www.CASHOregon.org, click on Volunteers, then click on Apply Now to complete the application. After filling out your application, you can register for Orientation. You can view a list of orientations and register by signing into the volunteer system at https://www.volunteermatters.net/vm. Openings fill up quickly, and this is a crucial first step in your volunteer experience.

At orientation, we will tell you about training and what you can expect as a volunteer tax preparer. You will also get all the details on the training process and receive your training materials. If you cannot make it to the PSU orientation and register for an off-site location, you will receive a confirmation for your scheduled orientation, along with a reminder before the session.

This experience is enjoyable and extremely rewarding. Beta Alpha Psi continually has a high number of volunteers year after year and were able to complete 350+ tax returns last year. Recently, the BAP team of volunteers won an IRS award for being one of the top three organizations in the United States to put in the most number of volunteer hours with helping people file their income taxes.

AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service. CASH (Creating Assets, Savings, and Hope) Oregon is a community based non-profit organization created to help working families improve their financial future. By working together, we have expanded free tax services throughout Oregon.
