Financial Literacy and Economic Success


Economic stability is a critical element for the well-being of families. We provide income tax assistance, adult education (Plaza Comunitaria), financial education and more.

Free tax preparation assistance

Our VITA tax assistance program is on hold, as the IRS has extended the filing deadline to July 15, 2020. We are not currently taking appointments for this program, but individuals interested in scheduling a time to file at a later date when our VITA clinic reopens, may call and leave their name and number.

Nuestro programa de asistencia tributaria VITA está en espera, ya que el IRS ha extendido el plazo de presentación hasta el 15 de julio de 2020. Actualmente no estamos tomando citas para este programa, pero las personas interesadas en programar una cita para presentar sus impuestos en una fecha posterior cuando nuestra clínica VITA reabra sus servicios, puede llamar y dejar su nombre y número.

We provide households with free tax preparation assistance during tax season (January – April) through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

VITA offers free tax help to people who generally make $56,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.

Our IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

In 2019 our VITA program provided 705 households with free tax preparation assistance, which resulted in $867,336 in refunds and $260,312 brought back in EITC benefits.

Free Tax Preparation is made possible by our VITA Volunteers and generous Sponsors: Citi Community Development, The Strong Communities Fund & The Napa Fund of the Napa Valley Community Foundation, United Way of the Bay Area, Napa Valley Vintners/Auction Napa Valley, Wells Fargo, and Mechanics Bank
