Each year more than $6 million in tax credits remain unclaimed in Santa Cruz County. Many low-income families don't know the credits available or don't know how to claim them.
SCCV, in partnership with the IRS, is committed to helping our community recapture these dollars by providing free tax preparation during the months of February - April.
In 2017, SCCV served 560 low and moderate income families, returning $620,000 in federal and state refunds.

Our program is made possible thanks to people like you who give a few hours of their time to help our neighbors and friends. Join us as we work to return tax dollars to low and moderate income families.
Cabrillo College and UC Santa Cruz students have the opportunity to volunteer and get educational credits. For more information please contact us.
