Lakes and Pines seeks volunteer tax preparers for its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program for low- to moderate-income individuals and families; people with disabilities; and senior citizens.

Other volunteers are also needed:

Volunteer intake specialists — Keep the tax clinic running smoothly; check people in and out; make sure taxpayers have all the documentation needed before they see a tax preparer.

Data entry specialists — Enter taxpayer data before a preparer completes the return. This is an important position that assists in time management of clinics.

Food coordinators — Many volunteers arrive at tax clinic right from work or volunteer to help with snacks and light meals.

Lakes and Pines CAC, Inc. is a nonprofit organization serving Carlton, Aitkin, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Its Carlton County clinic is in Moose Lake.
