Free Tax Help Bay Area is a coalition of organizations that provide free tax help 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 depending on income and family size may be eligible for various federal and state tax cash-back credits.
