Connect with Us Remotely for Tax Filing

These last few months have been a whirlwind. If you’re feeling as though your world has been turned upside down, you’re not alone. A lot of things have been postponed—even taxes.

If you still haven’t filed your tax returns (you have until July 15, 2020), free, professional help is still available for those who qualify. And, because our tax sites are only open on a limited basis due to the pandemic, you could even complete your entire return in your pajamas if you wanted to!

With CWF Virtual Tax Prep, you don’t have to get all your information together and deliver it to one of our offices. You still have to get your information together, but all you have to do is pick up your phone or log on to your computer. It’s easy and it keeps everyone safe, which is the most important thing right now.

Is This One of Those DIY Tax Software Programs?

No!

This isn’t like a do-it-yourself tax program (like TurboTax, TaxAct or H&R Block) you see advertised. You will still receive the same professional tax preparation service from our experts, just not in person. Instead, one of our experts will prepare your tax returns remotely. It’s the same great service that helps families who live in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey and earn less than $55,000 annually with services to get the refund they deserve.

So, How Does It Work?

All it takes is a few easy steps:

    1. Go to CWFphilly.org/virtual
    2. Click the link to GET STARTED (you’ll be directed to our partners at GetYourRefund.org)
    3. Answer some simple questions and verify your identification. 
    4. Upload your documents (W-2’s, 1099, 1095-A,B,C)
    5. Do a phone review with an IRS-certified preparer
    6. We’ll file your taxes…you wait for your refund!

No Computer, No Problem!

If you have access to a computer, great. If not, all you need is a smartphone that can access the internet and take photos of your important documents.

Is It Secure?

Yes! This portal meets all IRS security standards, and your information will be as secure as if you were visiting one of our in-person tax sites. GetYourRefund is a partnership between Campaign for Working Families (CWF) and Code for America, a non-profit that uses the principles and practices of the digital age to improve how government serves the American public, and how the public improves government, starting with the people who need it most.


Filing taxes can be complicated and confusing.

It’s not like we’re taught how to do our taxes in grade school—and even if we were, tax codes change all the time making it a challenge to keep up. 

Do you qualify for a tax credit or a tax deduction? Are you eligible for an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)? The skilled and experienced professionals at CWF can help you answer all those questions and make sure you take full advantage of any tax credits available.
