Thank you very much for choosing the Cuyahoga EITC Coalition to complete your tax return. We are a group of community partners and volunteers, all of whom are certified by the IRS to complete your taxes. We look forward to seeing you very soon! Please read the below information carefully so you are prepared for your appointment.

The tax preparation process may vary depending on the tax site. At select sites you will give your documents to a preparer and you will wait in your car or a designated room while it is being prepared. Other sites may ask you to return at a designated day and time to pick up and sign your tax return. 

If you are having your return done at a drop-off location, these sites will have capacity for a maximum of two (2) people at any given time to wait in the lobby if you are traveling by bus or arriving on foot and cannot easily return later.

All tax sites require an appointment this year - there will be no walk-in appointments. 


List of Documents to Bring

Failure to bring all required documentation with you to your appointment will delay the processing time. 

We require below documents:

  •  Photo ID: Driver License, Passport, Government-Issue Photo ID
  • Social Security Cards for every person that will be listed on return (including children) or ITINS

  • Bank account and routing number if using direct deposit to receive tax refund
  • If taxpayer has childcare expenses, need documentation of the amount paid, address of facility, and provider's Federal EIN number or provider's SSN
