It is important for the accuracy and completeness of the 2012 tax return that the taxpayers bring all 2012 federal and New Jersey tax forms and a copy of the 2011 federal and state returns. Required documents: The IRS requires that you present a photo ID before we can begin preparing your taxes. Also required are Social Security Cards or comparable documentation for you, your spouse and dependents. In the case of taxpayers filing joint returns, both taxpayers should be present to authorize the electronic filing.
