Welcome to Herndon Tax Aide, located at the Herndon Fortnightly Library. We will be open on:
Mondays from 4 pm - 8 pm (Closed February 20th)
Wednesdays from 12 pm – 4 pm
Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm
Beginning Monday, April 10th:
We will only be able to prepare Virginia State returns. No other state returns can be prepared.
All returns must be picked up the same day that they are dropped off. So please plan your schedule to be able to return to our site before the end of our shift on the date of your appointment.
Our final Open day is Monday, April 17th. If we prepare your return that day, please plan on staying on site until we complete the preparation and review of your return; you approve and sign the return AND the IRS electronically approves your return. This entire process could take 3 - 4 hours, so please plan accordingly. If you are unable to stay on our site, we will not be able to prepare your return.
This year we are using Drop Off Procedures.
Please review What We Can and Cannot Do to be sure we can prepare your return.
Everyone is being asked to:
Make an appointment. Online appointment sign-ups will begin January 23, 2023. Our appointment link is herndontaxaide.as.me.
We will only make appointments 2 weeks in advance. This gives us the flexibility to reschedule if we have to temporarily close our site due to illness or staffing shortages. Please do not make an appointment until you have all of your tax paperwork in hand.
If you have trouble scheduling an appointment, please drop by when we are open. We will try to schedule you that day, or if that is not possible, we will try to find you an appointment in the near future. We get very busy late in the season and may not be able to fit in additional appointments at that time.
Provide a call-back number (preferably cell phone) and email address where we can reach you if we need to modify your appointment time and we can contact you if we have any questions regarding your return.
Complete the Intake documents. Download forms here. No appointment will be honored if these documents are not filled in, to the best of your ability, prior to arriving.
Every tax return: complete the attached Form 13614-C, and, the rest of the forms in our taxpayer packet, if applicable to you.
If you cannot download the Forms, you can pick up a tax package at the Herndon Library. They will be on a cart on the 1st floor, located by the elevator.
Self-employed (or you received a 1099-NEC or 1099-K), please download the Self Employment Form or take a Self Employment Form from the file folder in the back of the pick up bin.
Bring your 2020 & 2021 Tax Returns;
Please remove the forms/letters from their envelopes.
Bring photo IDs for all taxpayers, and SSN/ITIN cards/letters/statements for everyone on the return. Photocopies are fine.
Wearing a mask is not required but may be requested by some of our volunteers. If you feel sick, please reschedule your appointment. We look forward to serving you.
You may contact us by email (preferred) or by phone. The phone is never answered live and is not constantly monitored.
