• VITA at the CARE Center

    VITA is the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, providing expert tax preparation services free of charge to qualified households.

    VITA at the CARE Center is provided in partnership with Mesa United Way and the City of Chandler. VITA is available to low- and moderate-income households. When filing your 2022 taxes, households with an income of $60,000 or less qualify for this service. VITA volunteers ensure that tax returns are prepared accurately and help households receive all the tax benefits to which they are entitled, including the Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides a check to qualified households even if no taxes were paid.  

    The VITA site at the Chandler CARE Center is open on Fridays and Saturdays during tax season only, and is taking walk-ins this year. 

    Days and Hours:            

    Friday | Noon - 4 p.m. (first day: Friday, February 3, 2023) 
    Saturdays | 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (last day: Saturday, April 15, 2023)

    This site will be closed Feb. 18, April 7 and April 8, 2023.
