Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams reminds residents there’s still time to visit Borough Hall to take advantage of FREE tax preparation sessions for eligible residents.
Thanks to popular demand, in partnership with the Brooklyn Cooperative Federal Credit Union, Grow Brooklyn, and the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs, additional dates between Thursday, April 6th and Monday, April 17th are being offered.
Single filers who earn $30,000 a year or less, filers with dependents who earn under $55,000 a year, or filers who are self-employed with expenses of $5,000 or less can all avail themselves of free expert tax preparation to see if they are eligible for federal and/or state tax refunds. (This includes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which can add an average of $2,400 to the refunds of approximately 1.1 million eligible New Yorkers!)
To expedite the process, bring a government-issued photo ID; Social Security or ITIN cards for yourself and all individuals on your return; all relevant tax forms (W-2, 1099-R, etc.); documents of higher education expenses; child care expenses, provider information, and student fees, as well as your bank account number/routing number for direct deposit.
