Event description


Due to COVID-19 health restrictions we are cancelling in-person tax preparation until further notice.

As an alternative we are offering a FREE online Do It Yourself Tax Preparation program with assistance from VITA certified preparers.

Understand you will be preparing your own taxes.

If you are comfortable preparing your own taxes and meet steps 1 and 2 please sign up for an appointment:

STEP #1: Eligbility - If you earned $54,000 or less in 2019 you are generally eligibile for free tax return preparation.

STEP #2: Requirements -

  1. Computer with internet connection.

  2. Basic computer skills to use google docs, zoom conferencing software and follow a google slide deck.

STEP #3: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT ONLINE - Go ahead and register here through EventBrite to make an appointment with us! Even though it is online, we need to staff the volunteers who will answer questions and review your tax returns (via zoom conference) during the appropriate time.


Students and community members that are citizens or permanent residents should go to which details the documents you will need to complete your return AND the form to fill out . The completed 13614 form will help you when you enter data into the Taxslayer preparation software.

However, If you are an international or foreign student, go to which details a separate set of documents you will need for your appointment AND a different form to fill out (NOTE: completing the Foreign Residence Address field is unnecessary) prior to your appointment.

STEP #5. Follow email instructions! 1 day before the event you will receive email instructions on login instructions to the Taxslayer software, screenshot guide links, and instructions to join the zoom teleconference.

DeAnza Community College is one of hundreds of Bay Area VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) sites that provide free tax help to low-to-moderate income families. We are part of the greater tax movement called Earn It! Keep It! Save It! (EKS), organized by United Way Bay Area (UWBA). You can read more about EKS at

Thanks, and see you soon!
