Tax Deadline Extension Update


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person free tax prep events are currently cancelled. Get online assistance at

The decision to close our in-person sites was based on California Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement that residents isolate themselves, as well as the CDC’s recommendation to cancel any gatherings. On March 16, the White House took that step further by encouraging Americans to avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.

Of particular importance to us is to protect those individuals most vulnerable and limit the spread of the virus

What we know:

Federal and California State tax return deadlines have been extended and are now due by Wednesday, July 15, 2020.

The IRS will be sending Economic Impact Payments to many individuals. For the latest information about these payments, please visit

What we recommend:

Prepare your tax returns at, a free resource for preparing most basic tax returns for both federal and state filing.

Upload your documents securely at and have a certified preparer complete your tax return.

What to expect:

If conditions change before July 15, we hope to re-open select tax sites.

If sites are able to re-open, some may stay open through September.

We will keep you posted with updates if the federal due date gets extended. We will continue to update this website as changes in recommendations throughout the tax season.
