Tax experts from the State Department of Taxation and Finance will be available to assist eligible state residents file timely and accurate returns at no charge.  The work will be done at 85 tax filing assistance sites across New York.

Volunteers will guide taxpayers through tax preparation software.  The sites will offer 1,200 morning, evening, and weekend sessions.  More than 5,000 taxpayers were assisted at these locations during the January to April filing season in 2015.

The free tax assistance service is available to New York individuals and families who earned less than $62,000 in 2015.

The program was first launched in 2014.
