Sonoma and Napa counties - District 10
The Sonoma-Napa 2019 summer/fall tax clinic is closed. If you have tax-related question, we still may be able to help you in some way, but we will not be preparing any new tax returns or amending any tax returns until our 2020 tax season begins, around February 1, 2020. If you would like advice, please call 707-327-2401 and leave a message with your name, phone number, and a brief description of your tax-related problem.
There are still two year-round sites that are doing tax returns for free, for those whose income is less than $55,000 per year: Tax Aid, in downtown San Francisco (415-229-9240) and UpValley Family Centers in St.Helena/Calistoga (707-963-1919).
If you're interested in volunteering at one of our sites in Sonoma and Napa counties, we'd love to have you become a member of our group. The approximately 90 people in our district who help people with their taxes are all volunteers - from the District Coordinator on down. The district provides all training (in January) and equipment (a notebook computer, for tax counselors), at no cost to volunteers, and the AARP Foundation reimburses volunteers for mileage. AARP membership is not required.
We operate at nine locations in Sonoma County, from Cloverdale to Petaluma, and from Sebastopol to the City of Sonoma, plus one location in the City of Napa. We're open almost exclusively during weekdays, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. with days and hours varying by location. Most locations are open one or two days per week; on the days they are open, they're usually open between four and six hours.
Our orientation for new counselors is on December 12.
