Free Tax Preparation Options for 2017

In 2016, DC 37 helped thousands of members get $10 million in refunds and savings on expensive tax preparation. If you (and your spouse*) earn less than the income ceilings below, or you are eligible for free or reduced lunch programs, you may qualify for this free tax filing assistance. (*Spouse’s income must be included if you are filing jointly).

When the W-2s arrive in January, click here for DC 37’s leaflet with more information on finding a FREE tax preparation center near your work or home. For a map of the Free New York City Tax Prep Sites, check http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dca/TaxMap/index.html.

For filers with incomes up to $60,000, regardless of family size, free self-preparation with electronic filing and back-up assistance is available at certain New York Public Library locations. For specific sites and hours, check https://www.nypl.org/help/community-outreach/income-tax-information.
