Gate City AppCAA Offering Free Tax Preparations and Filings

Now on their 11th year, AppCAA or the Appalachian Community Action Agency is once again offering low to moderate income residents an opportunity to have their taxes prepared and filed free of charge, now thru April 15th, 2019.
Using Certified IRS VITA volunteers, tax returns will be prepared using IRS approved online tax return preparation software and then will be e-filed absolutely free of charge. Options for getting your returns processed are by appointment, walk ins and drop offs.
Appointments for this free service may be made at AppCAA's Gate City office located at 175 Military Lane on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9-3pm. Walk in preparation and filing will also be done on these days as time allows. To make an appointment please phone 276-452-2441 or 1-833-491-VITA, extension 3.
If you choose the drop off option, clients will leave copies of their personal identifiable information such as Social Security numbers or cards, all original W-2 forms and any other income sources so that volunteers will be able to process their tax returns onsite as time allows. No appointment is necessary for the drop off option during normal operating hours of 8:00-4:30pm, Monday thru Friday.
After the completion of your taxes, clients will need to go back to the AppCAA office in Gate City to pick up their taxes and sign the completed tax return. If additional information is needed, clients will be contacted directly by the AppCAA staff.
In order to speed the process, all clients are asked to take along the following items if applicable:
Photo ID, Social Security cards for yourself and dependents, birth dates, W-2, W-2G, 1095-A, B and C, 1099-R, 1099-Misc listing all wage and earnings. Form 1099 from bank interest and dividend statements. Health insurance exemption certificate if you have one. Proof of bank account routing and account numbers for direct deposit such as a blank check. A copy of last year's federal and state tax returns if available.
