There's still time to come over to Brooklyn Borough Hall and take advantage of free tax preparation sessions for eligible residents.

In  partnership with the Brooklyn Cooperative Federal Credit Union, Grow Brooklyn, and the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs, Borough President Eric Adams' office has set up  additional dates between Thursday, April 6 and Monday, April 17 for the free tax help.
Single filers who earn $30,000 a year or less, filers with dependents who earn under $55,000 a year, or filers that are self-employed with expenses of $5,000 or less can all avail themselves of free expert tax preparation to see if they are eligible for federal and/or state tax refunds. (This includes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which can add an average of $2,400 to the refunds of approximately 1.1 million eligible New Yorkers!)
To expedite the process, bring a government-issued photo ID; Social Security or ITIN cards for yourself and all individuals on your return; all relevant tax forms (W-2, 1099-R, etc.); documents of higher education expenses; child care expenses, provider information, and student fees, as well as your bank account number/routing number for direct deposit.
For more information, or to make an appointment,call (347) 682-5606 or visit
