How Your Tax Return Will be Prepared

We will prepare your return following the IRS and Tax-Aide requirements for Drop-Off service.  Prior to arriving at the site, please read and complete the (Intake/Interview & Quality Review Sheet) you downloaded.
Completely fill-in on your computer and print the 8 pages or print it and then fill it in by hand.  Bring the print-out and all of your tax documents with you. Also bring your driver’s license or photo ID for you and your spouse if you are married and social security cards for all taxpayers and dependents.

Tax-Aide volunteers, in your presence, will review your documents and complete a thorough interview based on the documents that you provide.  After the Interview is complete, volunteers will inventory your tax documents and ask you to verify that inventory.  You will then be given an appointment time to return to review your return.

Your documents are stored in locked, secure storage when they are not being used to prepare your return.  Tax-Aide Counselors will prepare your return and have it ready for your second appointment.

During your final appointment, you will receive an explanation and copy of your tax return. You and your spouse if married will sign an IRS form that will allow us to electronically file your return, and your tax documents will be returned to you.  You will be asked to verify that all of the documents you provided to us were returned to you.
