IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS TO BRING:

  • A photo identification card for the individual and their spouse
  • Social security cards for everyone in the family
  • W-2 (s)
  • Last year’s tax return (Form 1040)
  • Interest and/or dividend statements, tuition form (if applicable), and bank information for direct deposit, if owed refund. 

The IRC in Atlanta is also seeking volunteer tax preparers to assist with this program! The commitment is one to two 2-hour shifts per week throughout the 11-week program, February 1 – April 15. No experience necessary as full training will be provided. Learn more about volunteer responsibilities and commitments here. If interested, please email volunteerATL [at] rescue.org to apply.
