Tax Assistance

Tax Preparation Assistance


Every year, hundreds of Tuolumne and Amador County families are eligible for free income tax assistance.

If you earned $54,000 or less, we can prepare and file your taxes free during tax season. 

In partnership with the IRS, ATCAA’s Tax Program offers free tax preparation for qualified recipients between January and April in Amador and Tuolumne Counties through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

Each year, there are many households who are not required to file a return but may benefit greatly from filing. There are many tax credits available such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child and Dependent Care Credit, Education Tax Deduction, and many more which can contribute to a resident receiving a tax refund.

We want you to know about the new California Earned Income Tax Credit called “Cal EITC” and the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit called EITC.  These credits are available to income qualifying individuals and families.
