Volunteer Roles

Every hour volunteered brings $500 in Federal refunds back to a low income taxpayer!

In 2020, Tempe’s VITA tax site volunteers gave over 3,000 hours of their time preparing taxes for the low/moderate income individuals/families, seniors and those with disabilities.  Collectively, our treasured volunteers served 1,706 taxpayers, preparing 1,712 Federal and State tax returns for free.  Thanks to this important service provided by volunteers, tax credits and refunds were provided to those who need it most.

Be a part of making a difference – consider becoming a volunteer.  Many positions are available.
