Get your taxes done for FREE
In-person or online options available

Save your hard-earned dollars and see if you qualify for valuable state and federal tax credits by using one of these two FREE tax return filing services before Tuesday, April 17, this year’s tax filing deadline.

  • In person at a Sacramento area tax preparation site (if your household income was $54K or less in 2017). See tax preparation site locations and dates listed below.
  • Online at MyFreeTaxes.com (if your household income was $66K or less in 2017). The website sponsored by United Way and powered by H&R Block software saves users an average of $200 in tax preparation fees. All you need is a valid email address, your adjusted gross income (AGI) from the previous year, and your income forms such as a W2, 1099, 1098, etc.

*Starting on Jan. 16, call 2-1-1 (for Sacramento county residents only) or (916) 498-1000 or visit www.freetaxhelp.us to schedule your appointment for a weekday or weekend.  The appointment line is open 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. If there is a specific phone number listed with a site below, please call that number directly to schedule an appointment.

Make sure you’re prepared for your appointment – here is a list of what you’ll need to bring. 

You could earn up to $6,500 through the state and federal Earned Income Tax Credits. California now offers its own Earned Income Tax Credit (Cal EITC) starting with calendar year 2018 tax returns. If you owe taxes, the EITC reduces the amount of taxes you might owe and may allow you a refund when you file your taxes. If you do not owe taxes, the EITC tax credit will provide you with a tax refund when you file your taxes.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is a national program that offers free help for those who make a limited income and need help preparing their tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic tax return preparation with electronic filing. VITA volunteers inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.
