INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROP OFF/VIRTUAL SERVICE – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Due to the current pandemic our office has had to change the way we do everything, please be patient as we do our best to provide this valuable service for our community.

IF YOU ARE A NON-FILER WHO IS FILING ONLY FOR THE STIMULUS, DO NOT FILL OUT THESE FORMS. UNFORTUNATELY, OUR OFFICE WILL NOT BE COMPLETING THESE RETURNS. The IRS offers many free filing options on their website. Please click here for more information.

Pick up a Tax Packet which contains all of the forms you will need to fill out for tax preparation services. These forms may also be printed/downloaded by clicking below.

TAX FORMS

Forms and documents may be returned by either emailing them to vita.lcgs@gmail.com or placed in the drop slot located on the right side of the front door at the office or a combination of both. Be sure all forms and documents are contained in an envelope if using the drop slot. This year, it is especially important that you include a copy of last year’s tax return as it may have a positive effect on this year’s tax return.

Once your documents have been received, someone from the tax office will call to complete the intake process. Returns are processed in the order received and must include all required documents to complete the return. Be sure to include copies of IDs and Social Security cards. If you dropped off last year, a copy of these should already be in last year’s envelope. Please be patient, we can’t work on taxes while answering the phones.

Please indicate the best time to contact you (and your spouse, if married) during the office hours listed above on the “Additional Intake Sheet”. This may include a video call on Google Duo (already installed on most smart phones) or Zoom.

Be sure to read the consent form #14446 that is included in the tax packet. It must be signed in order for VITA sites to prepare a return. It includes important information about how the site will operate this year. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis for the video conferencing after exhausting all virtual alternatives.

Logan County Good Samaritan is proud to be an authorized e-file provider.
