We have resumed our Valet tax prep with a slight change. Now, you the client will come to assigned location stay in your car and a tax preparer will come to you.  You will complete an intake interview and then leave tax papers, like W2s and 1099s, bank account information for direct deposit of refunds, and if applicable Marketplace health insurance, or 1095A form.  Volunteers will prepare and review your return and you will return to the same location one week later to review, and sign your completed return. The volunteers will then e-file the return.

Each visit – Bring your photo ID and a social security card for everyone on the return. We will check these documents but will not keep them.
