April 11, 2022

Tax season ends in a few days!  See below to schedule an appointment.  If you have trouble with the online system, call 480.269.7482 and we will do it for you.

If you need to file an extension, see our Extensions page.

Do you qualify for free tax preparation using the IRS VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program?  Generally, if your annual income is below $58,000 you will qualify.  There are a few tax situations we cannot help with.  Check here before making an appointment: Out of Scope Summary TY2021 .

Masters of Coin will operate three VITA sites at Scottsdale Community College, Via Linda Senior Center, and Desert Foothills Library.  Click here to learn how to schedule an appointment.

Once you have your appointment scheduled, you can save time by filling out the tax questionnaire before coming to your appointment.  That questionnaire can be downloaded here:

Please print out any electronic copies of tax documents you have to make the preparation of your return go faster.

We will also offer free access to the tax preparation software we use and provide remote assistance through phone, e-mail, or video chat. Stay tuned for more!

Our expert guidance on campaign finance will ensure you stay within the legal guidelines and proper reporting for a smooth run.

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.
