When the taxpayer arrives, they will be given an IRS form to complete and sign agreeing to have their return prepared by our program. 

After completing the form, they will meet with a tax return preparer to complete their tax return. The return will be reviewed with the taxpayer by a JMU tax professor. After reviewing the return with the taxpayer, the taxpayer will sign the consent to file their return and be given a copy of their return for their records before they leave. We will e-file the return with the IRS and state.
