Free Tax Preparation

The Urban Upbound Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) year round program offers free tax preparation assistance to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, seniors and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.  Urban Upbound’s free tax services offer a smart alternative for New York City families who are often forced to pay high fees through paid services that can cost hundreds of dollars.

Providing free tax preparation services enables qualified working families and individuals to take advantage of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) benefit – which provides an important lifeline in tough economic times and the ability to utilize every dollar of their tax refund, thus increasing buying power or allowing a means to start a savings plan.

  • All tax preparers are IRS certified – providing quality tax preparation services
