The due date for the 2020 federal and California income tax returns is May 17, 2021. If a completed questionnaire and all of the information necessary to complete your 2020 returns are received after April 15, 2021, Tax-Aid will submit an extension of time to file your returns until October 15, 2021.

Note that an extension to file is not an extension of time to pay any income tax due with your 2020 returns.

Tax-Aid is offering virtual tax services. That means you can email or mail us all of your tax documents and we will prepare your tax return for you. Everything will be sent back to you via email or mail. If you want to email us your documents, you will either need a scanner or the camera on your phone or computer to take photos of your tax documents.

Please follow these steps:

Step 1: Complete our tax questionnaire completely. Click this link to complete the questionnaire. 
 
If you prefer, you may download, print and mail us the questionnaire via US mail to our office along with all of your tax documents using the Checklist below. Please note, we check our mail only once a week so this is the slowest option.
