Help Connect New Yorkers to NYC Free Tax Prep

NYC Free Tax Prep services are available to anyone who lives or works in New York City, but we need your help to connect New Yorkers to services. We want eligible New Yorkers to claim valuable tax credits and save on tax prep fees, so please spread the word!

Below are some ways you can help amplify NYC Free Tax Prep.

  • If your organization directly interacts with New Yorkers, consider making referrals and/or setting up appointments for them. Referrals from trusted organizations help ensure access amongst all communities. NYC Free Tax Prep sites may be by appointment and/or offer walk-in hours. Visit or call 311 and ask for “tax preparation” to find the nearest site and more information.
  • Download and use our Digital Toolkit to help us spread awareness about NYC Free Tax Prep to your network. The toolkit includes sample social media messaging, email blast, website/enewsletter post, and text messages.
  • Contact our Outreach Team to request a presentation about NYC Free Tax Prep or to host an event in person or virtually.
