The state Department of Taxation and Finance said Friday that registration for free virtual tax filing assistance sessions is open.
Residents whose adjusted gross income in 2020 was $72,000 or less, qualify to receive free virtual tax assistance from the Tax Department.
During a prescheduled virtual webinar session using WebEx or Zoom, the department representatives will provide step by step assistance as needed through the free tax preparation software.
“Our online tax software is a safe, convenient, and secure way to file—and it’s free,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt. “I highly encourage all eligible New Yorkers—especially those with simple returns—to take advantage of this free tax assistance service to avoid fees charged by tax software vendors and tax preparers.”
