Building Civic Engagement
Through Financial Education

February 16, 2024

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program provides free tax preparation services to low-to-moderate income individuals and families.

Masters of Coin partners with the IRS to support VITA sites within the Scottsdale Corridor. Our sites will reopen starting at the end of January 2024.  We are now taking appointments at all of our sites.
See VITA LOCATIONS.

Who is Eligible? IRS-sponsored, FREE Tax Preparation is available to those generally with income less than $64,000, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

Please click here for returns that we cannot prepare.

What to Bring to Your Tax Appointment:

  • Social Security cards or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number documents for all individuals included on the tax return (Taxpayer, Spouse, dependents)
  • Photo identification for Taxpayer (and Spouse if married)
  • All relevant 2023 Tax Documents
  • Information for any additional income
  • Information for all potential deductions and credits, including charitable contributions
  • Banking routing number and account number for direct deposit or debit
  • A copy of your 2022 Tax Return (Federal and State)

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.
