Free Tax Preparation

Save money and file your taxes for FREE.
Let our IRS trained professionals help file your taxes for free. 

Households throughout the Sacramento region that earned $60,000 or less in 2018 can receive free tax help in-person from United Way’s Free Tax Prep program.  

Two Ways to File for Free

See if you qualify for valuable state and federal tax credits by using one of these two FREE tax return filing services before Monday, April 15, this year’s tax filing deadline:

  1. In person at a Sacramento area tax preparation site (if your household income was $60K or less in 2018). See tax preparation site locations and dates listed below.
  2. Online at MyFreeTaxes.org (if your household income was $66K or less in 2018). 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.

How to Schedule an Appointment

Call 2-1-1 or toll free 800-500-4931 to schedule your free tax preparation appointment. See the list of locations below for your closest Free Tax Prep site in your neighborhood.

Super Saturday – Free Tax Prep Community Events

Free Tax Prep services kick-off with the first Super Saturday event on February 2 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Grant Union High School in Sacramento. IRS-certified volunteers will provide free basic tax return preparation with electronic filing. No appointment required. For more Super Saturday events and weekday sites available during tax season, see list of locations below or call 2-1-1.

Save more money – Earned Income Tax Credits

You could earn up to $6,500 through the state (Cal EITC) and federal Earned Income Tax Credits. 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. Learn more at YourFreeTaxMoney.org.
