Building Civic Engagement
Through Financial Education

October 17, 2022

Tax season has ended, and our VITA sites prepared thousands of returns, generating millions of dollars in refunds for those in our community who need it most!

You can be a part of this success! We need volunteers to greet and screen clients, prepare and review tax returns, interpret for our non-English speaking clients, and answer calls and book appointments. You do not need to know a thing about taxes — we will train you! Please click on the Volunteer link above for more information.

If you don’t live near one of our sites, please visit VITA Central AZ to find a site near you.

We will also open new VITA sites at Vista del Camino Community Center in south Scottsdale and the Fountain Hills Community Center.

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

VOLUNTEER INCOME TAX ASSISTANCE (VITA)

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

Who We Serve

LOW INCOME INDIVIDUALS

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

SENIORS

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.

DISABLED and ESL TAXPAYERS

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.
