​Free Tax Preparation Services

Low-income families and individuals can now schedule appointments for no-cost tax preparation through the Social Services Agency’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program! 


The Social Services Agency (SSA) participates in Earn It! Keep It! Save It!, a coalition of Bay Area organizations that provide free tax preparation to households earning less than $56,000 a year.  


Tax services are provided by appointment only, no exceptions.


For more information contact SSA at (510) 271-9141 or email

Please bring required documents at your designated appointment time and complete a phone or virtual interview. You will be notified of a day and time to pick up your completed tax return.
