2020 VITA Tax Preparation for Tax Year 2019

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to vulnerable citizens, we have cancelled our in-person VITA tax preparation dates until further notice.  Following are 2 alternate options.  Remember, the tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15, 2020.  

What to have ready to do your taxes:

  • Photo identification for you and your spouse (if married)
  • Social Security cards or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number documents for you, your spouse, and dependents
  • Birth dates for you, spouse and dependents
  • A copy of last year’s tax return
  • All Forms W-2, 1098, and 1099
  • Forms 1095-A, B or C (ACA Statements)
  • Information for other income
  • Information for all deductions/credits
  • Documentation of total paid to day care provider and their tax ID number
  • For direct deposit of refund, proof of account and bank’s routing number
  • For prior year returns, copies of income transcripts from IRS (and state, if applicable)

We are offering a Virtual VITA option for clients with W-2 and 1099 income only.  

If your household income was less than $56,000 in 2019, and you have a simple return*, VITA volunteers can help virtually prepare and file your return. *A simple return has only W-2 and 1099 income. No self-employment or investment income.

Here's how:  

1. Scan your documents with a scanner or your phone (not an image)

2. Email them to

3. An IRS-certified VITA volunteer will contact you to complete and file your return
