The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has joined forces with the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and the Food Bank For NYC to offer free tax preparation services for NYCHA residents and low-income New Yorkers making $55K or less.

Free tax preparation services will be available at NYCHA developments, community centers, and Jobs-Plus sites through April 12. There are over 20 NYCHA locations across the five boroughs where residents earning $55,000 per year or less can file state and federal taxes for free with trusted, IRS-certified tax preparers thanks to support from Citi Community Development and the Fund for Public Housing. The process takes no more than 30 minutes, allowing the tax filer to leave the site and come back once the tax return is complete and ready to be submitted to the IRS.

As part of NYCHA’s initiative, in Rockaway, free tax prep services will be offered at CAMBA’s Arverne View site (57-11 Shore Front Parkway). Note that services offered at CAMBA’s Rockaway office are by appointment only. To make an appointment or for further information, call 718-675-3347.

In addition, all New Yorkers earning $66,000 or less, can file for free using NYC Free Tax Prep services, which include more than 150 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)/Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) and AARP Tax-Aide sites citywide, as well as online self-preparation at nyc.gov/taxprep. For more information about NYC Free Tax Prep, visit nyc.gov/taxprep or call 311. For a full list of free tax prep locations, visit: www.OpportunityNYCHA.org/taxprep.
