Fremont Family Resource Center to Help with Tax Season


The Fremont Family Resource Center’s (FRC) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free, quality tax return preparation assistance and electronic filing for eligible individuals and families with a household income of $54,000 or less annually. IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers help eligible taxpayers claim their maximum refunds, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which can amount to as much as $6,269 for a family with three or more qualifying children.

FRC VITA also provides access to asset building or income support resources such as public benefits, low or no cost bank accounts, and financial education. VITA falls under the City of Fremont Human Services Department’s SparkPoint Program and has helped more than 21,000 families receive over $32 million in tax refunds since 2002.

FRC VITA’s main location is at the Fremont Family Resource Center, 39155 Liberty St., Building EFGH, in Fremont. It will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting January 25, 2017 through April 18, 2017.

VITA services are also offered at the New Haven Adult School, Tri-Cities One Stop Career Center located at the Ohlone College Newark Campus, and Tri-City Volunteers.

For more information regarding days and times, visit the VITA website or call SparkPoint Fremont at 510-574-2020.
