Tax Season is Here!
Yup, we’re going to be preparing taxes this season! Wondering how we’ll do it?
Since our staff and volunteers are working remotely because of COVID-19, we’ve got some big changes for this year. Starting on Sunday, January 24, we’ll be able to help in two new ways:
Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) – Do you want to try preparing your own taxes, but feel like you’d need a little backup? We’re here for you! With FSA, you’ll input your own return. If you get stuck, you can email one of our IRS-certified Volunteers for help with simple tax questions. Interested? Click here to get started.
Virtual Tax Prep with Zoom – Would you be more comfortable if we input the return? No problem. We’ll set you up with a secure connection to upload your tax documents. Then, an IRS-certified Volunteer will prepare your return remotely. Later, you’ll go over the return with them on a Zoom call. Interested? Click here to get started.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer phone appointments as an alternative to Zoom at the start of the season, as we’d be required to check ID in person for clients whose ID we can’t check in a video call. While this would not be safe at this time, we hope to offer phone appointments at some point this season.
