🔹How to Make an Appointment🔹

VITA Facilitated Self Assistance

People pump their own gasoline, use automatic bank tellers, and print boarding passes at airline kiosks. They even scan, pay and bag their own groceries. Self-service is a widely accepted way of providing more services with fewer resources. With just a little help, people can perform many tasks for themselves.

During the COVID pandemic, we are all trying to stay safe and healthy. The IRS VITA program has expanded its tax assistance programs to include FSA (Facilitated Self Assistance) tax preparations to help us all social distance. This program empowers our community to prepare their tax returns from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Tax preparations will all be done online and all tax assistance will be virtual through use of TEAMS.

Our site has historically used one volunteer to assist one taxpayer at a time. FSA allows one volunteer to facilitate and help many taxpayers at once. This not only increases efficiency at our site, but also teaches people about their taxes. Our hope is that, given professional guidance, our FSA clients will go away with greater knowledge of the income tax system and an increased confidence in their own ability to prepare their own taxes.

How does it work?

7. A TaxSlayer link will be emailed to you for use. Create your own account from that page.

8. At appointment time, your Tax Preparer will be available through TEAMS to assist you through the tax process.

*As you enter your tax return, you only need to ask for help as you need it, as much as you need it.

9. When you are done, Preparer will help you check over your return and help you to e-file.

10. Use your TaxSlayer account and password to access your documents any time.
