CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS:
Consejo Hispano is a newly certified VITA site. VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, this a program of the IRS. The program allows the Hispanic Council to offer free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals such as:

-limited English-speaking taxpayers
While the IRS manages the VITA program, Consejo Hispano operates the site as an IRS partner and will be staffed by volunteers who want to make a difference in the community. Volunteers become trained and certified through the IRS. The Hispanic Council is currently looking for more volunteers (you are not required to speak Spanish). Please reach out to Adriana Guerrero via email if you are available: email@example.com or at the main office phone number 503-325-4547 by January 23rd. This program begins on February 15th. Training for volunteers includes maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of all taxpayer information.
