How Does it Work?
The Virtual VITA program utilizes technology to connect the taxpayer and tax preparer. The process is quick and simple. Make an appointment at our main office in Melville or any of our intake sites across Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
1. HWCLI staff will scan your tax documents to our secure online system and assist you in completing the intake forms.
2. Documents are uploaded to our secure online system.
3. An offsite tax preparer from the Food Bank for NYC will call you within three business days to complete your return over the phone. They will confirm your identity, discuss your income, expenses, any money owed, as well as if you qualify for a refund or tax credits.
4. If you have an email address, you can sign your return right from your smartphone or tablet. Or, return to the site to sign and file your return.
