However, more volunteers are needed.

"The more volunteers we have, the more hours we will be able to staff," Courtney said.

Time is of the essence, organizers said.

"People can volunteer on different levels from greeters to tax preparers," Rita Smith, the career agency’s manager, said. "We just ask that they contact us as soon as possible so we can get them into training."

 Holly McCarroll, an IRS tax consultant, said VITA training primarily is web-based. Call Courtney at 689-5850 or email to apply for training.

"Depending on their comfort level, (the training period) can be anywhere from a couple of days to a week or so," she said.

The agency is a fitting site, McCarroll said.
