Free Income Tax Services

You Earned It. Food Bank Will Help You Claim It.

New Yorkers who earn $54,000 or less (with dependents) or $30,000 or less (without dependents) are eligible for Food Bank's Free Income Tax Services.  Food Bank’s 2017 VITA sites open beginning in January – see locations.

All sites will be prioritizing filers with dependents for January and February.  We ask single filers (those filing with no dependents) to try Free File From Home, use Self Preparation sites (marked on the location map), or file in person starting in March.

All sites reserve the right to close the intake line prior to the announced closing time once we reach service capacity for that day.

In 2015, Food Bank For New York City helped get hard-working New Yorkers more than $140 million they were owed in tax refunds and credits.  Free tax preparation is also offered to self-employed taxi drivers and childcare providers.
