“Many San Francisco residents who were impacted by the pandemic are still struggling to make ends meet. In this current economic environment, especially in San Francisco, every extra dollar helps families in the City,” said Mayor London Breed. “The City’s free tax prep service helps eligible individuals file their taxes at no cost, and also helps families apply for tax credits, like the Working Families Credit, which can make a real difference for families trying to stretch their dollars to the end of the month.”

To find free tax assistance filing options, visit or call 2-1-l.

SFHSA has two in-person tax sites:

  • 170 Otis Street – (415) 209-5143

  • 3120 Mission Street – (415) 487-3240

The City asks residents to call ahead to schedule an appointment or drop by between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Free tax assistance is also available at multiple San Francisco neighborhood locations in partnership with the United Way Bay Area, Mission Economic Development Association, Arriba Juntos, and other local organizations.
