Free Tax Assistance  

To make it easier for San Franciscans to file their taxes, free tax assistance is available at dozens of San Francisco neighborhood locations in partnership with the United Way Bay Area, Mission Economic Development Association, Arriba Juntos, and several other local organizations. The free tax preparation program is available to everyone who qualifies, including but not limited to older adults, those with limited English proficiency, and people with disabilities who require assistance.

To find free tax assistance filing options, visit or call 2-1-l. To use one of SFHSA’s two in-person tax sites, the City encourages people to call ahead to schedule an appointment, as tax prep assistance is in high demand, or drop by between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday:  

  • 170 Otis Street – (415) 209-5143  
  • 3120 Mission Street – (415) 487-3240
