The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced they will begin to accept and process paper and electronic returns on Friday, February 12, 2021.

The Dallas Community Tax Centers will begin to prepare tax returns starting Monday, February 1st.

PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS TIME, WE ARE NOT PREPARING NON-RESIDENT TAX RETURNS.

WE WILL BEGIN ACCEPTING THESE RETURNS IN MARCH. THANK YOU.

Virtual VITA Tax Preparation :

 

One of the options we have available is our completely virtual tax preparation. As a client, you will be able to join our private client portal, upload all tax documents into a secure server, and talk to our site coordinators one on one. This option will allow you to go through the tax preparation process at the comfort of your own home.

SCAN2Go! (Dropoff at our tax sites):

 

Our SCAN2Go dropoff option will be available at select locations.  This option is best for clients who do not have access to a computer or a smartphone to upload their own documents. We will keep contact at a minimum to ensure the safety of our staff and our clients. THERE WILL BE NO TAX PREPARATION DONE AT OUR TAX SITES.

VITA2Go! (Drive-Thru Dropoff):

 

Our Drive-Thru dropoff option will be available at select locations.  This option is best for clients who do not have access to a computer or a smartphone to upload their own documents. We will keep contact at a minimum to ensure the safety of our staff and our clients.

Follow us on Facebook (@DallasCTC) or text TAXCENTERS to  (833)-939-1387.

Who is Eligible?

 

Who is eligible to use VITA Taxes 2 Go?

 

  • Taxpayers who make less than $58,000 per year.
  • Individuals who are filing their current year 2020 taxes and prior years (2019, 2018, 2017).
  • Taxpayers who wish to renew their ITINs and file the current year’s tax return.

 

Who is NOT eligible to use VITA Taxes to Go?

 

  • Taxpayers who use the Married Filing Separately Status.
  • Taxpayers who have rental income.
  • Taxpayers who need to amend a tax return that has already been filed.

What Technology will I need?

 

  • You will need a smartphone or a computer to complete required forms, scan or photograph your tax documents to be uploaded to your designated folder, and verify your identity.
  • You will need access to a stable internet connection as well as a working number and email address.

How long will the process take?

 

You will need at least 30 minutes to complete the intake sheet, Virtual VITA consent form, and expense sheet (if applicable).

After your taxes have been uploaded, the time frame to complete and review your return will be around 72 hours, depending on the complexity of your return.

Will I need to schedule a phone/video call appointment?

 

For our Virtual VITA clients:

 

Once your tax return has been completed and quality reviewed, we will contact you to schedule a video conference call with a tax preparer. This will be necessary in order to verify your identity. During this video call, we will go through your return before you can sign the consent to e-file your return.

For our SCAN2GO & VITA2GO clients:

 

Once your tax return has been completed and quality reviewed, we will contact you to schedule a phone call with your tax preparer. During this phone call, we will go through your return before you can sign the consent to e-file your return.

 

Is it safe to submit my documents via the Virtual VITA, VITA2GO and SCAN2GO!?

 

Your privacy and security is the most important part of this process.
  • Our partnership with Moxtra allows us to provide our Community Tax Centers clients with some of the world’s leading financial institutions.
  • All your tax documents will be uploaded to a secure server.
  • We will be sending your return to you via an encrypted pdf that only you will be able to access.
  • Our organization uses an IRS issued software called TaxSlayer, which provides multiple security measures to authenticate the login of one of our certified tax preparers.
  • Once a return has been transmitted and accepted, the client data will be wiped clean.

How Virtual VITA Tax Preparation  Works:

Our Virtual Tax Preparation is best for clients who have access to a computer or a smartphone. This process is completely virtual from start to finish. All communication will be using the Moxtra website and Moxtra mobile application.

 

TO BE A PART OF OUR VIRTUAL VITA TAX PREPARATION OPTION, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS:

1. Create a Moxtra account using the link below.

 

Please create an account using a working email address that you will have access to. This is where you will get all of your message notifications.

 

2.  You will receive a direct message from one of our administrative staff within 24 hours instructing you to submit your documents and answer any questions you might have.

 

Please NOTE: While we work diligently to make sure all of our clients are served as soon as possible, we cannot guarantee this response time during the weekends.

3. Once you have submitted your documents, our tax preparers will begin to complete your return and have it quality reviewed.

 

If a tax preparer has a question regarding a part of your return, they will attempt to contact you with your main form of communication.

 

 

4. Once a return is being quality reviewed, we will call to schedule a follow-up Video Review Call. This call will be to verify your identity and to go over your return.

 

If you are filing as Married Filing Jointly, BOTH spouses must be present for the review call.

5. Once a review call has been scheduled and completed, you will receive an encrypted pdf of your tax return via the Moxtra platform. Your tax preparer will walk you through your return and you will be able to sign Form 8879, allowing us to e-file your tax return.

 

Once the return has been signed, you will immediately receive a signed copy of your return for your records via your email. The form will also appear on the Moxtra conversation you will be conducting with our staff.

 

6. After you have signed Form 8879, our tax preparers will transmit your return to the IRS and you’ll be on your way to getting your tax refund!

 

We continue to monitor our tax returns to make sure they have been accepted by the IRS. If for some reason your return is rejected, we will reach back out to you to fix the error.

How VITA2Go (Drive-Thru Dropoff) Works:

Our VITA To Go! Tax Preparation is best for clients that do not have access to a printer or would like to “drop off” their tax documents rather than upload them:

 

1. For the month of February, our VITA2GO (drive-thru VITA) events will take place on Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm at:

Southern Bible Institute & College

7200 S Hampton Rd, Dallas, TX 75232.

 

Download our comprehensive checklist to make sure you have all tax documents in place BEFORE arriving at our drop off location:

3. You will be directed in a line to the two stations that will serve you:

 

The first station will verify your eligibility and verify you have all the necessary documents with you.

 

The second station will take your documents and scan them into our cloud system without you having to leave your car.

 

 

4. Once we have scanned your documents, our staff will upload your documents to a secure server where our tax preparers will begin to work on your return. NO TAX PREPARATION WILL BE CONDUCTED AT OUR VITA2GO EVENTS. 

 

 

5. Our tax preparers will begin to prepare your tax returns off site, and will send it for quality review once it has been completed. 

If a tax preparer has a question regarding a part of your return, they will attempt to contact you with your main form of communication.

 

 

6. Once a return is being quality reviewed, we will call to schedule a follow up Phone Review Call. This call will be to verify your identity and to go over your return.

7. Once a review call has been set up, you will receive an encrypted pdf of your tax return via email. Your tax preparer will walk you through your return and you will be able to sign the Form 8879, allowing us to e-file your tax return.
