Volunteer with us in 2019 (Tax Year 2018)!

We help over 15,000 taxpayers each year throughout the state of Hawaii, but we can't do it without our volunteers.  We have a variety of positions available, some of which require no tax knowledge at all.  If you are interested in serving Hawaii's kupuna and low-to-moderate income families and individuals, click here for information about our volunteer opportunities and to contact us about volunteering.  Individuals with computer skills (basic to advanced) are particularly needed, as all of our sites use computers and tax preparation software.  Please submit a volunteer application online by Nov 1, 2018 so we can ensure your training needs are met.
