NYC Free Tax Prep Services

File your taxes with NYC Free Tax Prep. Changes to tax credits means more money for you when you file.  They'll help you get your money.  If you earned $72,000 or less in 2021, file for FREE with an IRS certified VITA/TCE volunteer preparer.


There are several ways to file:

In-Person Tax Prep: Knowledgeable IRS certified VITA/TCE volunteer preparers will sit down with you to complete an accurate tax return. Sessions take a minimum of 30 minutes.

Drop-off Service: You can drop off your tax documents and pick up the completed return later.

Virtual Tax Prep: is a safe and reliable online tax prep service. You must have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone; a stable internet connection; and the ability to download secure video conference software. An IRS certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)/Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) volunteer preparer will:

help you file your 2021 tax return during a 60-90 minute virtual call;

use a secure digital system to manage your tax documents;

answer your tax questions.

Assisted Self-Preparation: allows filers to complete their tax return online on their own and an IRS certified VITA/TCE volunteer preparer will be available by phone or email to answer questions. Filers will need access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone; a stable internet connection; an email address, and their 2020 adjusted gross income (AGI) or self-select PIN.

IMPORTANT: If your family received advance Child Tax Credit payments in 2021, you must file a return in 2022 to claim the remaining 50% of your total credit. This includes families who signed up using the IRS Non-filer Portal or
