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
income tax returns for free.
If your individual income was $25,000 or less or your household income was $51,000 or less last year, the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program can help you secure all the refunds and credits you are
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.

· Picture I.D. for taxpayer and spouse (if
· ORIGINAL Social Security card for each family
· 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
· Prior year tax return (if possible)
Last year, United Way's 319 trained volunteers prepared 8,558 tax returns and secured $12.6 million in tax refunds for participating individuals and families.
