Woodside on the Move (WOTM), the longstanding neighborhood non-profit, is offering free tax preparation services this year to qualified New Yorkers.
The free tax services are available to those earning $54,000 or less with dependents, or $30,000 or less with no dependents.
In addition, Woodside on the Move will assist seniors who have a gross income of $18,000 or less prepare their taxes.
The group says it will help low-income residents claim refunds and credits, including the earned income tax credit, which can be worth over $8,000 for families.
Those interested in the service should bring along all pertinent documents, including:
– Photo IDs
– Social Security cards or a letter from the SSA
– W’2s and 1099 forms
– Form 1095-A (health insurance premium tax credit)
– Childcare expense records
– Routing and account numbers for direct deposit
– Form 1098-T if tuition was paid for post-high school education
All services are available until April 12, and appointments can be scheduled for by calling Woodside on the Move at 718-467-8449.
Appointments for non-seniors can be made for Mondays and Thursdays only from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at WOTM’s offices, located at 39-42 59th St.
Senior assistance will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same time and locations, beginning February 13.
Spanish-speaking preparers are available upon request.
