We will be offering a free tax preparation program to the community beginning Friday, February 23, 2018 and extending to the tax filing deadline on April 17, 2018.
We will be preparing and filing complete returns. Clients will meet with a certified tax preparer, who will complete their return. It will then be checked by a certified Quality Reviewer and then e-filed the same day. The whole process should take about an hour. Clients can choose to have their refunds deposited directly into their account or have a check mailed to their home.
This program is free for individuals earning $50K or less annually, and families earning less than $80K annually. The preparers are not enormously picky about this; if somebody is close to this limit (by $5K or so), York College will still prepare their returns for them.
Appointments can be made for Fridays by calling 718-268-5011, and Walk-In's will be taken on Sundays. Please bring with you a picture ID for everyone on your tax return, a copy of last year's tax return, Social Security cards for everyone on your return, your tax documents (W-2, 1099, etc.), and a voided check if you'd like for your return to be sent to you by direct deposit.
