• Perry JFS’ trained Ohio Benefit Bank™ counselors are NOT trained tax professionals. 
  They are community volunteers that have been trained to use the Ohio Benefit Bank™  software. 
• There are certain situations that prevent an individual from using the Ohio Benefit Bank™
   to file taxes. A partial list of these situations can be found here
• Perry JFS’ trained counselors work diligently to ensure the correctness of their data entry on your  behalf; however, if an
  error occurs the IRS will reject the submission and send you a letter with the reason why.  Once you receive the information,
  contact Cassandra at 740-342-3551 ext. 636 so that the mistake can be corrected and your taxes resubmitted. 
   There is no penalty for this kind of error!
• If you do not have all of your forms, Perry JFS’ trained counselors can not file your taxes.
  If you receive forms after you have filed, you will need to contact a CPA to file an addendum on your behalf.
