TUCSON - Free tax return help is being made available locally.
The Pima County Housing Center is one of 22 local sites where volunteers are helping
low- and moderate-income individuals and families prepare their 2012 federal and state

eligible for, including the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Trained VITA volunteers are at the Housing Center, 801 W. Congress St., from 1 to 4 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through Saturday, April 13.

· Proof of income, including W-2s and 1099
· Documentation of deductible expenses
· Account and routing numbers of checking and
savings accounts for direct deposit of refunds
