United Way of Northern Arizona — VITA Services Suspended in Northern Arizona Due to COVID-19

| March 23, 2020
The United Way of Northern Arizona (UWNA) has announced that Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) services in Flagstaff, Williams, Tuba City, Page, Fredonia, Whiteriver, Kykotsmovi, Keams Canyon and Holbrook have been suspended through April 4 due to concerns about COVID-19.
 
This action was taken not only out of concern for our VITA volunteers and clients, but also all the communities UWNA serves.
 
For clients who have already dropped off their forms to the VITA program, their taxes will be reviewed and completed as normal. A VITA volunteer will call to discuss the returns in lieu of meeting face-to-face, and all forms will be mailed back to clients.
Earlier this week, UWNA and its community partners had hoped to keep the program open for the immediate future by converting VITA services to drop off or Scan2Go only. However, in the past day it became clear that the safest and most responsible course of action would be to discontinue the program for the time being.
 
As this pandemic unfolds, we will evaluate conditions in each city and determine if it would be safe to begin VITA services again after April 4. We will, of course, notify you as these decisions are reached.
 

We encourage everyone to stay safe and keep informed. For general information about COVID-19, please consult your County’s website:
