Thanks to a partnership with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, volunteers will be on hand at the library to guide you through the process of filing your own return. Taxes will be e-filed – 92% of all New Yorkers file electronically. It’s safe, accurate and if you qualify for a tax refund, you’ll get if faster.
1½ hour appointments can be scheduled on Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, January 27 to April 13. To schedule an appointment, call the library at 518-392-3666.
- The income limit for individual or joint filers to qualify for this service is $62, 000.
- Both state and federal returns can be filed
And from the state’s site:
