    Procurement Office transitions to new document management system

    Four more weeks to get free tax help
    County employees and members of the public still have four more weeks to get their taxes prepared - for free - if they have family incomes of under $66,000. Pima County is again teaming with United Way and its Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to offer free tax-preparation assistance. 
    VITA enables taxpayers to bring in their documents, which are reviewed, scanned, and uploaded to a secure server. It usually takes about 20 minutes. Seven to 10 days later (sometimes faster), the return is securely emailed or can be picked up at a VITA site.
