Schedulers schedule Tax-Aide appointments. Schedulers work in the central scheduling office. Working morning or afternoon shifts they answer the telephone and schedule taxpayer appointments using Acuity scheduling software.  They explain to taxpayers what information and items must be brought to their Tax-Aide appointment.  Learn more.

Facilitators (Greeters) work at the tax preparation locations. Facilitators welcome taxpayers and distribute the necessary forms.  They maintain the appointment logs, ensure that taxpayers are helped in an appropriate order, and assign each taxpayer to a Tax Counselor. Learn more. 

Tax Counselors work with taxpayers to prepare their federal and state (Maryland) taxes using IRS provided software. Counselors are certified after attending a week-long training class and passing an exam.  Counselors volunteer at more than 20 different libraries, community centers, and senior centers in Montgomery County.
