Queens residents who need a little extra help getting their taxes in order will have a little extra help thanks to a joint program between state Assemblywoman Grace Meng (D-Flushing) and Baruch College beginning later this month.
The program offers free tax preparation services to area residents who make less than $49,000 per year. The opportunity is available Saturdays and Sundays from Feb. 19 until April 17 by appointment only.
Anyone with interest in having their taxes prepared should call 718-939-0195 to set up an appointment to come into her district office at 136-20 38th Ave., Suite 10A in Flushing.
Clients are asked to bring photo identification, Social Security cards for all family members, W-2, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, 1099-R, 1098-E, 1098-T, SSA-1099 and any other forms they have received related to their taxes when coming in for assistance.
The tax prep work is done by volunteers at Baruch’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, who are certified by the IRS to complete state and federal tax forms.
