The Internal Revenue Service and Pio Decimo Center — an agency of Catholic Community Services — are rounding up volunteers to help Marana residents in need prepare their taxes for free.

The IRS trains and certifies the volunteers, who help those who can't afford to pay for tax assistance. Seniors, as well as those with disabilities and low income, are eligible for the assistance.

Volunteers need not be experienced. The IRS will provide instruction and materials for free. Volunteers will be asked to be available four or five hours a week, from February to mid-April.

In addition to tax help, volunteers are needed as Spanish language interpreters and client screeners.
