Just Harvest looking for volunteer tax preparers

 


Just Harvest, one of the largest free tax sites for low-income households in Allegheny County, needs volunteers to help provide free tax preparation assistance for low-income individuals and families in Allegheny County.

Over the past four years, 353 students, professionals, and retirees dedicated more than almost 18,000 hours to serve neighbors in need. In just four tax seasons, volunteers prepared more than 21,000 tax returns and helped return $34.3 million in tax refunds back to local residents, including $13.6 million in Earned Income Tax Credits. 

For the taxpayers served, these tax refunds helped put food on the table, pay off debt, make rent or mortgage payments, and pay for heat and electricity during Pittsburgh’s winter months. Those who have experience doing their own tax returns, or just want to learn, are needed. Volunteer tax preparers are needed at 10 locations in Allegheny County including South Side.
