The city of Phoenix Earned Income Tax Credit campaign is seeking individuals who want to become Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) volunteers. VITA volunteers help low-income working individuals and families by preparing their taxes and claiming the federal Earned Income Tax Credit.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming tax season. The Internal Revenue Service, in partnership with the city of Phoenix, will be conducting free training sessions from November to January at locations around the city.
One volunteer hour may be worth more than $1,800 to a working family.
To become a VITA volunteer for the upcoming tax season, fill out the online application at phoenix.gov/eitc or for more information, call 602-534-0543.
