Tax-Aid has teamed up with the city to offer free tax returns the next three Saturdays before the April 15 deadline to file 2008 income tax returns.

Volunteers, including certified personal accountants, will assist families on a first-come, first-serve basis this Saturday and again March 21 and April 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Columbia Middle School, 739 Morse Ave.

The service will be available to Sunnyvale residents, including those who are not U.S. citizens, according to the city.

Spanish language interpreters will be available, and participants should bring social security cards or tax identification numbers for all working adults, W2 forms, 1099 forms and any other income form.

Participants are also asked to bring renters information and bank account information, the city reported.

Additional information about the free tax service is available from Tax-Aid online at or the Columbia Neighborhood Center at (408) 523-8150.
