VEAP is pleased to once again host Prepare + Prosper for free tax preparation services on-site. From February 1 to April 14, P+ P will be at VEAP to hold appointment-only, drop-off tax preparation services on Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30 – 9 p.m. Participants must make an appointment to drop off their documents. Tax preparation will occur off-site. Appointments fill quickly but new spots open throughout the season. Call 651-287-0187 to make an appointment or visit prepareandprosper.org Please do not call VEAP for this service as we are unable to make appointments for you.
Taxes are prepared by IRS-certified volunteers and double-checked for accuracy. Volunteers prepare federal and Minnesota tax returns, including property tax refunds for renters and homeowners. Receive your refund faster: Direct deposit is the fastest and safest way to get your refund. Bring your routing and account numbers to your tax prep appointment, open a prepaid debit card on-site, or contact us to open a checking or savings account before your tax filing process is complete.
