HOW IT WORKS

You will need an email account or access to one to use the service. You will also need a phone if we prepare for you.

 

From your cell phone or tablet: Simply take photos of your tax documents, and then of yourself, (and spouse if filing a joint return), holding your California ID.

 

From your computer: Scan your tax documents and upload your selfies.

 

Next, visit our partner portal, answer a few tax-related questions, and upload your photos and documents when prompted.

 

Once your information is received, you can either complete the return yourself or have a certified tax preparer complete it for you. If we complete it, our tax preparers will work with you over the phone. When your return is complete, you will be given instructions on how to retrieve your completed return.

We are grateful to our partner, United Way California Capital Region for providing us access to the virtual preparation platform to meet the needs in our community this year. The platform is safe, secure, and approved by the IRS.
