Each tax season, Arizona families miss out on millions of dollars in tax refunds because they are unaware of programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable federal income tax credit eligible to low-income working individuals and families. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is designed to change this by providing families with the knowledge and guidance to lessen their financial burden.
The Tempe Financial Stability Initiative, a collaboration with Tempe Community Council, Tempe Schools Credit Union, W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and the Internal Revenue Service, operates a VITA program in our area.

You are eligible for free tax preparation if you meet one of these requirements:
Tax preparation is on a first-come, first served basis. It is very important to bring all necessary documentation to ensure a timely filing.
The IRS has made it easy to save some of your federal tax refund by allowing you to split your tax refund among three accounts, such as a checking, savings and a U.S. Savings Bond. Plan to bring your checking and savings account numbers and the name of your financial institution with you when you get your taxes done.

Taxpayers served at this VITA site will have trained volunteers to assist them in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to help low-income students attend college.
