Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Tax preparation help

Mesa United Way is the major partner in our community with the federal Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, which provides expert tax-preparation services free of change to low- and moderate-income households. VITA ensures that tax returns are prepared accurately and that these individuals and families receive all the tax benefits to which they are entitled, including the Earned income Tax Credit, which provides a check to qualified households even if no taxes were paid.

Become a VITA volunteer

In the weeks leading up to tax season, Mesa United Way will be recruiting and training volunteers to help prepare tax returns. It is interesting and satisfying work, and many of our volunteers have returned year after year. If you are interested in becoming a VITA volunteer, click HERE for more information.
