Year-Round Tax Service
The Mesa VITA Program offers tax return preparation services throughout the year. This service is provided only at the Mesa United Way office located at 137 E University Drive, Mesa AZ 85201 (south side of University between Center Street and Mesa Drive).
Prior year returns (from tax year 2000 onward) and amended returns are included in this service. You must have all of your tax documents for each year (see What to Bring below). If you do not have all of your tax documents for a year call your local IRS office to obtain a “Wage and Income Transcript”.
For amended returns you must also have a copy of the original return as filed or a transcript from the IRS. Go to http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript or call the IRS to obtain a “Tax Return Transcript”.
