Free Tax Prep

Volunteer

Volunteering as a tax preparer is one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences out there. You’ll work one-on-one with clients to complete their tax return, bringing back critical funds to our Bay Area communities and neighborhoods.

Our primary focus is providing friendly, free, and high-quality tax services to clients who need them most and we ensure that our taxpayers maximize their refunds by claiming critical cash-back tax credits like the Federal and California Earned Income Tax Credits (Cal EITC), and the California Young Child Tax Credits.

2021 Update

In 2021, the Cal EITC and Young Child Tax Credit will be available to all eligible working Californians, including younger workers, those over 65, and those filing a tax return with an ITIN. California residents who made less than $30,000 in 2020 may be eligible for up to $8,000 in state and federal tax credits, depending on income and family size.
