From the City of Fremont:
The SparkPoint Fremont Family Resource Center, which now houses the VITA program, is kicking off the 2013 tax season with in-person and/or drop-off tax preparation services.
SparkPoint FRC VITA has an established partnership with the “Earn It! Keep It! Save It!” Campaign coordinated by the United Way of the Bay Area. The SparkPoint FRC VITA site is the largest site in Northern California and serves residents living in the Tri-City area. All tax returns are prepared by trained IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers and quality reviewed prior to submission.
In addition to tax preparation services, SparkPoint FRC VITA offers programs and services to help individuals and families become financially self- sufficient. Qualified families and individuals making $51,000 or less are eligible for free tax preparation and e-filing.
