First Test Of The New Year

January 6, 2011

The VITA (volunteer income tax assistance) test is passed.  It was hard!  Most of it consisted of questions where I was given all the info on someone and told to figure out their taxes.  I think I could probably still use some practice with the tax prep software, but the important thing is I passed, and I”m ready to go out and help people in the coummunity prepare their taxes.

How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

December 29, 2010

In the spring, I’m volunteering for the VITA program at the law school.  We help low income people file their income taxes.  To do it, I have to complete an IRS online training course.  I started it tonight.  It looks long.  At the end I have two chances to pass a certification test.  Hopefully I learn something about income tax from this.
