ASL Drop-Off VITA Tax Prep

This service is specifically for taxpayers that require an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter: Taxpayer will complete the intake/interview process at the site. The taxpayer will leave the required copies of identification, social security number, and tax documents with the tax preparer. The taxpayer and interpreter will wait outside of the building while the return is being prepared. The tax preparer will come to the taxpayer and interpreter to address any questions during the tax preparation and review processes. After the taxpayer reviews and signs the tax return, it will be transmitted to the IRS for processing.

The return will not be sent to the IRS until it is signed by the tax payer. *A face covering is required to be worn while interacting with staff and at the tax site. **The taxpayer will be contacted via telephone if the tax preparer has questions or needs additional information.
