Director of Erie FREE Taxes

United Way Erie FREE Taxes is the vehicle by which the national Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program delivers free tax preparation services to eligible individuals and families at the local level.

Erie FREE Taxes addresses United Way’s aspirational goal of “improving community conditions in measurable and recognizable ways” by providing free tax preparation to lower income working individuals and families, providing financial relief from paid tax preparation.

The Director oversees the coordination, development, and administration of all aspects of Erie FREE Taxes, including planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and evaluating program activities and outcomes. The Director ensures high-quality free tax preparation services by certified volunteers are provided to low-moderate income tax filers in Erie County at multiple and countywide host tax sites.

Erie FREE Taxes provides direct service to widely diverse populations across the county. The Director is an individual who is keenly aware of, sensitive to, and understands the needs and challenges of these populations, especially low-income and economically disadvantaged who may be at financial risk to enable them to be financially stable and secure, and, ultimately, financially self-sufficient.

The Director commits to being readily available to tax filers and volunteers throughout the filing season beyond normal work hours.
