In-person Tax Preparation Assistance

In-person Appointments

Health and safety permitting, many sites are planning to return to offering in-person appointments. You will bring your tax documents to a Tax Site location where an IRS-certified tax preparer will prepare your taxes during your appointment time. In most cases, your taxes will be filed with the IRS that same day!

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.
