- PHOTO ID. Examples include: driver's license, passport, military ID, etc.
- Social security cards (must be an original or copy of an original) for each individual appearing on your tax returns. The IRS is requiring that we verify numbers from Social Security Cards in an effort to prevent identity theft;
- Wage and earning statements (Form W-2) from all employers; SSA-1099, showing Social Security Benefits; all types of 1099 forms; 1099-B forms, accompanied by documentation showing the original asset purchase prices and sales proceeds.
- Form 1098 documenting your mortgage interest, mortgage insurance payments, and property tax payments; documentation to verify medical expenses, charitable contributions, and child care payments; any other relevant documentation related to your income and deductions.
- A copy of your previous year's tax return.
- Bank account and bank routing numbers, both of which can be found on a check from your checkbook, for automatic deposit of your Federal and State Tax Refunds into your checking account.
Taxes that are filed electronically do not require a written signature. Therefore, parents who are married and filing jointly can provide a copy of their spouse's photo ID and Social Security card, and a signature on IRS Form 14446 and that spouse need not be present.
Fewer children in the waiting and tax preparation areas speeds up the preparation process and keeps our preparers focused on your taxes. Therefore, we strongly recommend that filers with young children make childcare arrangements if possible.
Also, be sure to bring a social security card for yourself and anyone who will be listed as a dependent on your filing.
