FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 5, 2021

Tax season is here, and the Yolo County Children’s Alliance, United Way, and City of West Sacramento are helping the community prepare 

Starting on March 13, the Yolo County Children’s Alliance and partners are hosting free tax preparation events on Saturdays until April 10.

Tax day is only a few short weeks away, and the Yolo County Children’s Alliance (YCCA), United Way, and the City of West Sacramento are working together to host three in-person Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) events. With the pandemic placing a large portion of our community into uncertain times, assistance navigating the daunting process of filing taxes is just one way we are working together to help those in need. The VITA events will be held at centralized locations and are appointment-based. Tax preparation and filing assistance will be offered in English, Spanish, Russian, and Farsi to help as many in our community as possible. To schedule an appointment, individuals can call the YCCA Family Resource Center: 916-572-0560.

Free Tax Preparation Events: 

  • Saturday, March 13 
  • 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon 
  • Arthur F. Turner Community Library | 1212 Merkley Ave, West Sacramento, CA 95691 
  • All appointments are full for 3/13. For more information, please call 916-572-0560.

Saturday, March 27 

  • 8:00 AM – 12:00 Noon 
  • YCCA Family Resource Center | 1200 Anna Street, West Sacramento, CA 95605 

Saturday, April 10 

  • 8:00 AM – 12:00 Noon 
  • YCCA Family Resource Center | 1200 Anna Street, West Sacramento, CA 95605 

“Many West Sacramentans have faced difficult times and financial hardship during the pandemic, so getting the most out of our tax returns is vital to survival, and to starting on the road to recovery,“ said City of West Sacramento Mayor Martha Guerrero. “One of the key aspects of these tax events is that we work with the Yolo County Children’s Alliance to provide accessible assistance in several languages: English, Spanish, Russian, and Farsi to serve our diverse population.”

Due to the COVID-19 climate, Yolo County Children’s Alliance staff continues to offer virtual tax preparation assistance and limited in-person assistance Monday – Thursday. Yolo County community members who would like to set an appointment or need more information can call our West Sacramento Family Resource Center at 916-572-0560.
