Northland Pioneer College (NPC) locations in Holbrook, Show Low, and Hopi are approaching the closure date for offering their annual free tax preparation assistance. The last day to receive this free service will be Wednesday, April 6, 2022. The services are in partnership with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, sponsored by United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona (UWTSA). Assistance is available to individuals and families earning up to $73,000 annually.
You can connect with VITA’s local virtual network of tax preparers online at GetYourRefund.org or use the free Self-Prep Software to complete your taxes yourself. Or, NPC is offering valet drop-off services in Holbrook and Show Low which will be available on Wednesday, March 6, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and the Hopi Tribe’s current Public Health Red Alert, NPC’s Hopi center is using the “Get Your Refund” website. Hopi’s valet drop-off services will be offered by appointment only to individuals who cannot navigate the website or who do not have internet access, by setting an appointment at https://calendly.com/vita-uwtsa/npc-hopi-valet-vita-tax-preparation or by calling 928-738-2265.
Required documents include: a valid picture ID for taxpayer and spouse (if filing jointly), Social Security or ITIN cards for all household members claimed on the return; proof of income; wage and earnings statements (Form W-2) from all employers; interest statements from banks (Form 1099); Form 1095-A if you purchased Healthcare coverage from the Market Place; a copy of last year's tax return if available; and other relevant information about income and expenses. You should also bring the name, address, and tax ID number of child care providers, and the amount paid.
