More than 80 volunteers are needed to prepare tax returns at United Way’s free income tax preparation sites.
Four centers will be open starting Jan. 21. The program aims to help low and middle-income families prepare their income tax forms.
Volunteers will receive free training. The tax sites will be located in Everett, Lynnwood and Monroe. Volunteers who are multilingual are needed. They also need greeters and translators.

Take along designated drivers: AAA urges Halloween partiers to designate a sober driver.
That should be the party plan every time you go out.
In Washington state from 2004 to 2008, there were six fatalities and 27 serious injuries resulting from crashes on Halloween night. Half of the fatalities and more than a third of the serious injuries were from crashes that involved a driver who had been drinking.
Take a sober driver, call a cab or walk home. And even sober drivers need to watch out for trick-or-treating kids, and annoying teens who are still out tossing pumpkins when bars close.
Halloween fiesta in Monroe: Northwest Latinos United offers its first Halloween fiesta at 5 p.m. Saturday at the East County Senior Center, 276 Sky River Parkway, Monroe.
Admission is $5 and includes dinner, dessert, a haunted house and a cultural dance demonstration.
