Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA, provides free tax preparation for individuals and families with low to moderate incomes. In addition to this free tax preparation assistance, participants receive help to determine their eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit and ensure they get the full tax refund for which they qualify. Returns can be electronically filed and most refunds are received in less than two weeks. This service is offered at our Main ICS Office at 2820 West Ina Road.
ICS participates as one of many sites throughout the Tucson area. The program is coordinated by the United Way of Southern Arizona. IRS training is available and required for all volunteers helping with this program. The program is offered from the end of January through April 15. Hours and days of services vary with the sites.
ICS is one of the most active VITA sites in Pima County helping more than 400 people a year with their taxes
