We are a member of the Central AZ VITA Network. CAVN is a network of non-profit organizations and municipalities who offer VITA services.


Low income and elderly individuals will receive help with income tax preparation.

Who We Serve


Through our VITA program, we help you file your personal tax return if your income is less than $60,000.


We’ll help you file a tax return even if you are not required to file. This may help you become eligible for property tax freezes, property tax credits, and protect your identity from someone falsely filing a return in your name.


We help disabled and English as a second language folks with their returns. We can help you obtain or renew an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) if you don’t have a social security number.

It was a pleasure to participate as a VITA volunteer!  Originally I thought it was a great opportunity to give back to the community. However through the tax preparation volunteer works, I realized that by “giving”, I am actually “taking” because of the satisfaction helping others. Especially helping the people who work really hard to support themselves.



Jim Simpson, PhD, CPA recently retired as a Professor of Computer Information Systems and Accounting at Scottsdale Community College. He and a dedicated group of VITA volunteers started Masters of Coin to bring together the many volunteers who have helped make the SCC VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program such a success and expand the reach to help people become better citizens through financial education.
