Tempe, Arizona – Volunteer tax preparers and translators are needed at free income tax assistance sites in Tempe and Guadalupe on Saturdays from January 26 to April 12, 2008.

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), created by Congress, returns money from overpayment of taxes to workers with modest incomes. Free tax preparation and electronic filing are provided by volunteers as part of a coalition of Tempe Community Council, City of Tempe, Newtown Community Development Corporation, Tempe Schools Credit Union and the IRS. Since the coalition was initiated five years ago, volunteers have helped bring nearly $7.4 million in EITC refunds to working families.

Tax preparers must complete an IRS course in tax law and pass an IRS test. This year, the 5-week tax law course will be offered from 6-9 p.m.

on Nov. 15, Nov. 29, Dec. 6, Dec. 11 and Dec. 13 at Tempe Schools Credit Union, 2800 S. Mill Ave., Tempe.

Translators need not know tax terms.
