If your household income was below $68,000 (or $48,000 if you’re single and have no dependents), the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs’ Office of Financial Empowerment is offering free one-on-one in-person electronic filing (e-filing) at its tax preparation site in Long Island City, Queens. A tax expert will review your information with you and help you file your taxes, as well as file for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) if you qualify. Appointments are required; to make one, call (718) 784-0877 or email VITA@urbanupbound.org. You will be required to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, including wearing a mask and social distancing.
