  • Appointments may take about 30 minutes.
  • Prepare your packet and make your Drop-Off appointment ASAP.
  • Tax processing time depends on volunteer work flow.
  • After you have been notified that your taxes are complete, make your Review/Sign appointment ASAP.
  • Best to prepare your taxes in February/early March.
  • Limited Drop-offs and Review/Signs may be allowed without an appointment if volunteers are not busy, but you shouldn't count on it.
  • Appointments are best!
