Tax-Aide, a free tax preparation service sponsored by AARP, is seeking volunteers to do tax returns in Bellingham.
The service will be offered at the Bellingham Public Library and other sites in the Whatcom County from February to April of next year.
Although extensive previous tax preparation experience is helpful, it is not required. But volunteers should have basic computer skills and an ability to work with numbers.
All volunteers are required to do a self-study course (online or from printed material) and pass an online test to receive certification from the Internal Revenue Service. Hands-on computer training will also be provided in January.
