The Board meets on the 4th Thursday of each month from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.
VITA Income Tax Services
Maximizing a tax refund can put vital money back in peoples’ pockets. We offer free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) tax preparation services where caring, trained volunteers guide Marin residents through matters such as reporting on public benefits and claiming the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), so they can claim tax benefits for which they’re eligible and understand their choices for the next year. Tax assistance is part of the integrated services that help to put long term financial security within reach.
