PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT, please pick up a tax packet at the location of your appointment.
Tax preparation will require one appointment. During the appointment, volunteers will conduct an initial interview, prepare the Federal and state returns, do a quality review, and present the returns to the taxpayer(s) for comments and signature. The returns will then be electronically filed.
We cannot prepare returns with self-employment income (if there are employees, losses, inventory, expenses that exceed $35,000, depreciation, or business use of home), rental income, farm income, moving expenses, foreign earned income, foreclosure or bankruptcy, military, or clergy.
