Yolo County’s nonprofits are holding three free tax preparation events in West Sacramento starting this month.
The Yolo County Children’s Alliance, United Way, and the City of West Sacramento work together to help the community prepare for tax season with volunteer income tax support events. The first event will take place on March 13th and the last on April 10th.
“With the pandemic dragging a large section of our community into uncertain times, helping us through the daunting tax filing process is just one way we can work together to help those in need,” said a statement from the Yolo County Children’s Alliance.
An appointment is required for these services and assistance is available in English, Spanish, Russian, and Persian to help as many in our community as possible.
To make an appointment, individuals can call the Yolo County Children’s Alliance Family Resource Center at 916-572-0560. Appointments take place at the following times and locations:
- March 13: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Arthur F. Turner Community Library (this event is full)
- March 27: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Yolo County Children’s Alliance Family Resource Center
- April 10: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Yolo County Children’s Alliance Family Resource Center
“Many Western Sacramentans have faced difficult times and financial difficulties during the pandemic, so getting the most out of our tax returns is important in order to survive and walk the road to recovery,” said Martha Guerrero, Mayor of West Sacramento . “One of the key aspects of these tax events is that we are working with the Yolo County Children’s Alliance to provide accessible assistance in multiple languages: English, Spanish, Russian and Persian to serve our diverse populations.”
Yolo County Children’s Alliance staff also provide virtual tax preparation assistance and limited personal assistance Monday through Thursday. Members of the Yolo County Ward who would like to schedule an appointment or need more information can call the West Sacramento Family Resource Center at 916-572-0560.
