When you arrive for your appointment, hand over all of your documents to a volunteer tax advisor who will interview you about the information you provided and have you sign a waiver allowing you to keep the documents in your possession while you are away .

You will then leave the tax prep room and wait in your car or in the library. Upon completion, you will be called and asked to return to the room where you submitted your documents.

Your taxes will be discussed with you and all your questions will be answered. Once you have approved your return, it will be electronically filed.
