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 and Project SCOUT, 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.
