How Does It Work?

  • Go to GetYourRefund.org/esr, and follow the instructions to answer questions about you and your family, snap photos of your tax documents and upload them with the click of a button.
  • Our volunteer tax preparers, who are certified by the IRS, will review your documents and call you to verify we have everything needed before beginning your return.
  • The preparer will complete your return and it will be reviewed by a second preparer to ensure accuracy and completeness.
  • You’ll receive an electronic copy of the return and review the results with us over the phone.
  • You’ll electronically sign a form authorizing us to e-file the return.
  • If you need a paper copy of the return, you’ll be able to pick it up at the ESR during designated hours.
