About the Internship

Duties:

To assist the VITA program to prepare income tax returns for low income individuals and families at Gracies Community Room.

Population Served:

We serve mostly residents of Maricopa County who qualify based on our income limits.

Community Need:

Many lower income people are unfamiliar with income tax law or cannot afford the fees to prepare and file their returns. As a branch of Tempe Community Council and in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service, we study the tax law so as to maximize the legal refund due each client and efile both their federal and state returns for free.

Community Impact:

Each year, we prepare over 1200 resident returns as well as conduct seminars at ASU to prepare around 500 nonresident returns.
