United Way of Utah County is currently recruiting interns for the upcoming tax season to work with their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. They will be working with clients and volunteers to make sure that working families in our community have access to the tax preparation help they need.
The VITA program provides free tax preparation service to individuals and families with an annual income of $54,000 or less. All of the tax preparers are volunteers, and they receive free training and IRS certification in tax preparation before tax season starts. Last year, this program helped over 4,000 people in our community and brought back about $4.9 million in tax refunds.
They are looking for two interns to help with the administration of the VITA program at one of their Provo sites. The internship starts in November and runs through April, and interns will be paid $10/hour for about 15 hours a week. All necessary training will be provided, so no previous tax experience is required. More information about the intern responsibilities can be found on United Way’s website.
This internship could be a great fit for BYU statistics students who are interested in using their analytic skills to work in the community. Interns will also have the opportunity to get hands-on experience administering a local nonprofit program, supervise volunteers and learn about volunteer management, work one-on-one with clients in the community, and receive free tax preparation certification from the IRS.
