Free Tax Preparation

Tax season is here! Call 2-1-1 for information on free tax preparation assistance and the California Earned Income Tax Credit.

Trained volunteers at VITA sites offer free tax filing assistance through April 15 (dates and times vary by site). VITA volunteers help taxpayers prepare basic tax return forms. VITA sites are held at libraries, churches, senior centers and other community meeting places. All locations that are open to walk-ins will serve clients on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments are preferred, if available. Call 2-1-1 for more information. 2-1-1 Resource Specialists will advise you what to bring with you to your tax assistance appointment.
