Volunteering with Earn It! Keep It! Save It!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Earn It! Keep It! Save it! (EKS). EKS Bay Area provides free tax preparation to low- to moderate-income individuals, families, and seniors. Tax returns are prepared by trained and IRS certified volunteers at local community organizations.

Last year, more than 3,500 volunteers helped to prepare over 81,000 tax returns and returned $84 million in total refunds to local residents. This money was returned to the pockets of Bay Area residents and put back into the local economy. We need your help to reach even more families in 2017!

Join our exciting coalition of volunteers – we will provide training and link you to a local site to assist low-income families and seniors in your community. We have over 200 sites throughout eight counties in the Bay Area (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano). Check out the top 10 reasons to become a tax preparer with EKS!



Every year, volunteer recruitment begins in mid-October! The process is different for new versus returning/experienced volunteers.
