In-Person Tax Services Offered By Appointment

In-Person (same day) – Requires the client to schedule an appointment, visit the tax site in-person with their tax documents and intake and consent forms.  The tax return is completed by a tax preparer on-site with the client present the same day.  

Drop-Off  – Requires the client to visit the tax site with their tax documents and intake and consent forms which are reviewed by a tax volunteer.  The tax return is completed without the client being present, but will be asked to return to review and sign their return at a later date and then e-filed. 

Other Tax Service Options Available 

Do-It-Yourself – Complete your own tax return for free (based on eligibility) by utilizing  either of these online programs:  My Free Taxes or IRS Free File Partners.

International/non-resident ASU students – please do not schedule a tax appointment.  For information on how to obtain assistance for this unique tax filing click here

Beginning in late February, our tax site will accept some walk-ins on an available basis during our operating hours listed above; however there is no guarantee your tax returns will be completed and filed that day, and there could be a considerable wait time.   

On a case-by-case basis, limited virtual-only options are available, please contact us if this is a needed service.
