The Benefit Fund’s Tax Preparation Assistance Program includes a quick, easy and secure option for filing your taxes online from home, with the help of our partners at the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs’ Office of Financial Empowerment, United Way Worldwide and H&R Block. This option comes with step-by-step instructions to help you prepare your taxes yourself.
MyFreeTaxes Tax Preparation Program for Those with a Household Income of $66,000 or Less
You can file your taxes from your own computer by visiting www.MyFreeTaxes.com. Please note that throughout this process, you should see the “MyFreeTaxes” logo at the top left corner of your screen. If you do not see it, you will need to exit, and then log into the system again. If you require assistance while completing your return, you can visit www.NYC.gov/taxprep or call 311 to find the nearest Assisted Self-Prep site. At these sites, IRS-certified VITA/TCE volunteer preparers are available to answer questions and help you complete your return.
For more information about NYC locations, please call 311 or your 1199SEIU Benefit Fund at (646) 473-9200.
