What people are saying about Tax-Aid:


“Tax-Aid has prepared my taxes for several years. One year while I was getting my taxes done a Tax-Aid volunteer invited me to become a volunteer. That was 10 years ago!  AND SO, I’ve learned to give back to my community by assisting with translation from Spanish to English and preparing BASIC income tax returns. Minnie, KINDLY gave me a letter of recommendation and it helped me to let potential employers know more about my personality. Now I have a new job in finance!”

-Maria R, former client and 10 year volunteer


“Your generosity reaching out after the fires was so appreciated and really just so timely! As the main person answering the phones, I can’t tell you how many fire victims called in that we sent your direction.”

                                                                                – Suzanne Yeomans United Way of the Wine Country’s EKS Program


“It was quick and easy to work with Tax-Aid. I felt so relieved to receive help with my taxes as a fire victim.                         I was worried it would be another big stressor in my life, but it wasn’t!

 – Deni, Santa Rosa wildfire victim


“I had the pleasure of working with Francis on my taxes this year. He is a CPA, knowledgeable, patient, easy to understand and delightful. Tax-Aid is well-organized and there is a positive consensus among the recipients about their experience. Many come every year and that is my plan too. We all feel lucky to be on the receiving end of competent help by volunteers who clearly enjoy their task.” 

-Elizabeth, a senior with low income
