Free Tax Preparation
Do you need help with your tax return? Goodwill Central Coast can help you prepare and file your tax returns so that you claim the highest possible return. We can help you figure out which benefits you’re eligible for and how to claim them. Have you not filed because you can’t afford to hire a tax preparer or because you’re not sure you’ve made enough to receive a refund? Let us help you, free of charge. Our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS to review and process taxes for free. Learn more about opens in a new windowVITAopens PDF file .
Subsidized Job Placement Program

Specific programs differ in each county, and we are always looking for community-minded employers who need new talent and are willing to assist in the training and development of our participants. If you are an employer or a CalWorks participant looking for work, please call your nearest Goodwill Central Coast Career Center.
