New York City officials kicked off the tax season and encouraged single-filing New Yorkers who earned $56,000 or less in 2022, or families who earned $80,000 or less, to file their taxes for free using NYC Free Tax Prep.
NYC Free Tax Prep provides free, professional tax preparation that can help New Yorkers keep their full refunds, including valuable tax credits, such as the newly enhanced New York City Earned Income Tax Credit (NYC EITC). The new NYC Free Tax Prep for self-employed New Yorkers will also provide income tax services to freelance workers and small businesses.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began accepting tax returns on Monday, Jan. 23, and will continue to do so until Tuesday, Apr. 18.
In-person services are available in English, Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian-Creole, Hebrew, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Urdu, and other languages are yet to come.
New Yorkers can call 311 or visit New York City’s tax prep website to choose the best filing option for themselves and find the most convenient location for in-person or drop-off tax prep. A checklist of what documents New Yorkers need to bring with them to file in person and multilingual information about the services are available online.
