Description

GET TAX HELP

Earn It! Keep It! Save It! Bay Area tax preparation assistance to low-moderate-income individuals, families and seniors. Our volunteers are here to assist you in filing your taxes.

Did you earn less than $64,000/household in 2018? Do you have a valid email address? Do you have a valid Social Security Number or Individual taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)?

You may be eligible to file both your state and federal tax returns for free online through the United Way.

Our volunteers are certified in many but not all topics of the tax law. Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone who struggles with financial issues in the Bay Area. Here are a few of the most common situations where we cannot help:

Married Filing Separately

Rental Income

More than 5 stock trades
