  • All current tax year documents
  • Your Social Security card and a current photo ID
  • A check (if you want direct deposit of your refund)
  • Your previous tax year Federal and State documents
  • Your spouse (if filing jointly)
  • All W-2, 1099, 1088, and dependent documentation

  • A list of other expenses, deductions, and childcare information
