Cancelled for This Year

Free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance appointments are cancelled.  No safe way has been found to implement this program during Covid 19.

Sponsors include the Humboldt County Library, the Redwood Action Agency, and United Way of the Wine Country, as well as many other local participating groups.

Volunteer tax preparers go through a thorough training provided by the IRS.
