CINCINNATI (January 2024)  – United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC) needs volunteers to help prepare tax returns for thousands of individuals during the 2024 season. We believe all families deserve economic well-being, and Free Tax Prep volunteers directly support individuals and families in that effort.

UWGC looks to build upon last season’s success in which volunteers served more than 7,600 families, saving them more than $2 million in filing fees. More volunteers also stepped up to help, which translated to 500 more returns prepared and $8.7 million in refunds for filers.

Free Tax Prep services begin at the end of January and continue through April. Services this season include in-person, drop-off and virtual options.

Not a tax expert? No problem!

There are volunteer roles for all interests, and UWGC provides training and ongoing support. Individuals can volunteer on their own or as part of a group adopting a tax site.

UWGC only asks that volunteers are: 

  • personable and friendly
  • comfortable working with a diverse group of clients 
  • willing to ask questions 
  • willing to learn and use tax preparation and tax facilitation software 
  • willing to learn new skills 
  • willing to adhere to high ethical standards

It’s not too late to train, certify online and start volunteering at one of our many community partner sites. Learn more about our Free Tax Prep initiative by visiting uwgc.org/taxprep.
