Tax preparers are responsible for preparing basic income taxes. You work with taxpayers to ensure that they file a complete and accurate tax return. You will receive instruction on interviewing and using preparation software.
Site greeters welcome customers as they come in, give them the correct forms to fill out, and help people complete those forms when needed. Other duties may include answering phone calls while the Tax Preparer is busy with a customer.
Ambassadors help distribute information before and during tax season by handing out flyers and door hangers to get the word out. Ambassadors have a direct impact on how many people find out about our services.
