What Are the Benefits of Using this Service?

SAVING $$$ (The average tax return costs $200). Don’t pay $ for something that you can get it done for free. Our volunteers are certified and some are tax professionals. 
 

What Asset Building Opportunities Will I Be Made Aware of at the Sites?

After you determine what your refund will be, you will be given opportunities to put that refund to use by being made aware of information on: paying off debt; contributing to the Thrift Savings Program, 529 Plans, IRAs, 401(k)s and other savings vehicles; using part of the refund to purchase Savings Bonds; joining the Military Saves campaign; and working with a financial counselor in addition to other great asset building opportunities.
 

What Should I Bring with Me to the Site?

Proof of identification. Social Security Cards for you, your spouse and dependents. Completed Intake Sheet. Wage and earnings statements fromW-2,W-2G and 1099-Rs. Interest and dividend statements from Form 1099. A copy of last year’s federal and state return (if available). Form 1098 from your mortgage. Bank routing #’s and account numbers for Direct Deposit.
