Volunteers

Junior and senior Monmouth College students participating in this program gain valuable hands-on experience preparing tax returns for the community.

The following are the objectives of our program: technical skills, issue-identification, research, problem-solving, teamwork, ability to work under pressure, organization skills, technology skills, ethics, awareness of how tax issues affect others, communication skills, and professionalism.

The experience should lead students to better citizenship, greater understanding of community needs, and help in solving social issues.

In preparation for this service, students attend tax workshops (both federal and state), must pass a certification exam, and train using TaxWise professional software.
