My parents file their taxes separately. How should I upload their forms since there is only one link?
You can combine both documents into a single file before uploading. Or reach out to us and we can add additional links for you.
My parents (or I) worked abroad in the requested tax year and we file taxes overseas. How should I handle this?
We accept foreign tax documents provided an unofficial translation is included in the submission. Please make sure to translate all fields (i.e. wages, gross income, business income, investments, etc.) and convert all monetary information to USD. Make sure to label the documents as converted, so we know that the currency is correct.
The status of a document will change from Not Received to Not Reviewed once a file is uploaded. Once a document has been reviewed and is approved, the status will update once more to Approved. Processing time is generally 1-2 weeks.
