tax program (eitc)

FREE tax preparation services for those who qualify!

Now, more than ever, you deserve to keep your money, especially during tax season. Earn It! Keep It! Save It! Wine Country provides FREE, quality tax return preparation to individuals, families, and seniors. To qualify for FREE tax help and possible earned income tax and child care credits, your household income must be less than $54,000. Being a U.S. citizen is NOT a requirement.

The tax sites also ensure eligible taxpayers claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), one of the federal government’s largest resources for low-income residents. It reduces the amount of income tax low-to-moderate income families are required to pay, and provides a wage supplement to some families. According to the New America Foundation, thousands of Californians fail to claim EITC. Families and local economies suffer when these refunds go unclaimed.
