Join our exciting coalition of volunteers - we will provide training and link you to a local site to assist low-income families and seniors in your community. We have over 250 sites throughout eight counties in the Bay Area (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano). Check out the top 10 reasons to become a tax preparer with EKS!

All of our tax preparers and screeners must be trained and certified by the IRS. Training class schedules vary by county and begin in December and/or January. On average, three to four days of classroom instruction is offered. For tax professionals or experienced volunteers, an online training and certification tool is available in November.

Site operation hours vary by site, but each volunteer is asked to commit to volunteer regularly (at least a 4 hour shift per week), beginning late January through April 15th.
