Tax Assistance for NYS and Federal Tax Returns

On selected Thursdays starting March 9, New York State Tax Department employees will provide assistance for completion of electronic tax returns
  • Thursday, March 9
  • Thursday, March 23

New York State Tax Department employees will walk you through your income tax returns, step-by-step, as you complete your own tax return.

Individual appointments are scheduled through New York State’s online booking system at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2 PM.

  • This is NOT tax preparation. It is tax filing assistance only.
  • If you earned $73,000 or less in 2022, you qualify.
  • Safe and secure online tax software.
  • Use on-site computers, or your own laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
  • You only need basic computer skills and an active email account.
  • You must pre-register and schedule an appointment.
