Earn It! Keep It! Save It! (EKS) is a coalition of organizations that provide free tax preparation for low-to-moderate income households in the Bay Area. We make sure taxpayers claim the tax credits they are eligible for, helping families maximize their refund to make ends meet. Tax returns are prepared by trained and IRS-certified volunteers.

 

STARTING POINT: Orientation!

Orientations are held October through January each year. We have already begun the tax volunteer season -- please check back next year if interested in starting as a new volunteer!

 


AFTER ORIENTATION: Sign up for online volunteer training and a volunteer location.

If you are a new volunteer, view the New Volunteer Training Schedule and sign up. New volunteer training prepares you to take your IRS Tax Volunteer Exam for the first time!

If you are a returning/experienced volunteer, view the Returning Volunteer Training ScheduleTraining for returning volunteers is optional, as you can go straight to the certification exam.

NOTE: The site list will be updated on a rolling basis through December (since sites are still determining their final operating days/hours). Sites will be added as they finalize their plans for operating.
