2021 Tempe VITA Tax Site Info

Tempe Community Council’s Tempe Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is committed to the health and safety of our team, board members, clients and partners. We are taking the concerns around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously and are closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies, the City of Tempe, state and local public health officials.  The following outlines our plans for the 2021 tax season:

Services Provided

100% Virtual VITA – No personal contact with volunteers or other clients, completed using Zoom and DocuSign applications.  Clients complete intake forms and submit tax documents electronically, volunteers prepare the return and reviews with the client via Zoom.  The volunteer electronically files the return, the client is responsible for printing and maintaining their return copy.   Send a Virtual VITA email request to begin this online tax preparation service. 

Drop-Off Taxes – Limited in-person contact by appointment only – no walk-ins accepted.  Drop-Off tax services require the client to visit the tax site with their tax documents, complete the intake forms which are reviewed by a tax volunteer.  The tax return is completed without the client being present, but will be asked to return to review and sign their return (also by appointment).  Based on the local cases of COVID-19 and potential health risks to volunteers and taxpayers, this service is evaluated often and are subject to change.  Check availability and schedule an online  drop-off tax appointment beginning February 8.  More appointments will be added on February 22 and subsequently every two weeks until the end of tax season (based on COVID conditions).     

 Do-It-Yourself – Review online programs available to complete your own return:  My Free Taxes or IRS Free File Partners.
