Tax Prep Certification Links 2019

Hi Tax Prep Volunteers,

Tax law, policies, and procedures change frequently. For this reason, New York Cares Tax Prep volunteers are required to recertify every year.

As a returning volunteer, you are not required to attend an info session or attend an in-person training. All you have to do is recertify online with the IRS and email us your certification PDFs at

The IRS has released the updated links and resources for the certification.
Use this link below to access a step-by=step guide on how to certify.

If you do want to attend a refresher in-person training, email us at and we can send links to sign up for those trainings.

We look forward to you joining the tax prep team!

Committed Project Date Range:

Mid January-Mid April


Since 1987, New York Cares has been our city's premier volunteering organization. We create opportunities for tens of thousands of busy New Yorkers to give their time each year through fulfilling, flexibly-scheduled volunteer projects. New York Cares responds to our city's most acute needs by reaching out to social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, and other deserving organizations, and mobilizing teams of volunteers to help with their work. Volunteers tutor children, feed the hungry, assist people living with HIV/AIDS, revitalize community gardens, and much more.
