What Kind of Help are You Looking For?
In-person Tax Preparation Assistance
Scan & Go, Drop & Go or Car-side Appointments
You will bring your tax documents to a Tax Site location where they will be scanned and returned to you. An IRS-certified tax preparer will prepare your taxes at a different time and call you if they have questions or if additional information is needed. You will return to the tax site at a time determined later pick up your tax documents.
In-person Appointments (very limited availability)
Only a few sites across the state are offering this type of appointment. Please keep in mind that In-person appointments may be converted to Scan and Go appointments for health and safety reasons.
Fully-remote Online Tax Assistance (No Appointment Required)
GetYourRefund Remote Tax Assistance
Take a picture of your tax documents (or scan them) and securely send them to our tax preparers online through the GetYourRefund app. A volunteer will contact you to get the process started and then a trained, IRS-certified volunteer from your area will prepare and double-check your tax return to make sure it is correct before filing. Everything will happen online—even signing and filing your taxes.
