Taxpayers are asked to bring identification, social security card, income documentation(W-2), deductible expenses, and 2011 tax return, if available. People with education credits are asked to wait until the middle of February to request preparation assistance. Returns with education credits cannot be transmitted until that time due to IRS regulations.
