Connect with our local network of VITA tax preparers online. *Opening January 29th, 2023*

The GetYourRefund.org portal is open for the 2022 tax season. You will receive virtual return preparation, typically completed in 2 weeks. An internet connection, email address, and images of your necessary documents are all you will need to get started at that point. You can scan and submit your documents yourself or come to an in-person site and we’ll collect and scan that information for you. **Please note that we will accept returns with an income limit of up to $73,000. Please disregard any other income limit you may see on the GetYouRefund website.**

Please Note:
  •  All return preparation is performed by our local network of IRS-certified Volunteers.
  • All site schedules subject to changes or cancellations throughout tax season. Check back to the website often for the most up to date info.
  • The deadline to file taxes is April 18, 2023 - but we recommend an early start. This can help ensure you receive your refund in a timely fashion, or help you prepare in case you owe money.
  • Note that payments to the IRS can be scheduled for any date up to the filing deadline, so early preparation does not have to mean early payment.
  • For a sign-language interpreter, call: 520-445-8484

What is VITA?

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program through United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona provides free, quality tax preparation from IRS-certified preparers to individuals and families earning up to $73,000 annually.

Our VITA program helps taxpayers access all tax credits for which they are eligible – including the Child Tax Credit (CTC), the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), and for eligible older adults, the Arizona Property Tax Credit.

VITA is a community initiative led by United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, in collaboration with Catholic Community Services and partners throughout Northern and Western Arizona. Together, and largely through a network of dedicated volunteers, this collaborative serves residents in nine of Arizona’s fifteen counties.
