What we can and cannot do

Our counselors are trained in many aspects of tax law, but there are a few situations we cannot handle. Check this link to verify that we can help you.

Did you get a stimulus check?

Need help determining whether you received the "EIP" or stimulus payment in 2021? Check out these hints.

Did you receive Advance Child Tax Credits?

If so, you should have received Letter 6419 from the IRS detailing how much you received. We need to know this information to file your taxes. Click here to read more.

What you need to bring to the appointment

As you know, we need some identity documents -- and lots of other information to complete your returns. See a complete checklist of what you need to bring.

Keep us all safe

Before coming to your appointment, please review the COVID-screening criteria, and cancel your appointment if you answer YES to any of the questions. We will work with you to reschedule your appointment if this happens.
