WHAT IS FREE TAX HELP BAY AREA?

 

Free Tax Help Bay Area is a coalition of organizations that provide free tax help throughout the Bay Area led by United Way Bay Area in partnership with the IRS. Our services are free, secure, and high-quality. Tax returns are prepared by trained and IRS-certified volunteers.

 

We ensure taxpayers maximize their refunds by claiming cash-back tax credits like the Federal and California Earned Income Tax Credit, and the Federal and California Child Tax Credit. California residents who made less than $30,000 in 2021 may be eligible for up to $8,000 in state and federal tax credits, depending on income and family size.
