Our tax program is back! See our changes in light of covid-19
In the last 15 years, Food Bank’s FREE citywide tax assistance program has put more than $1 billion back into the pockets of low-income New Yorkers. While we are excited to resume this vital service this year, our top priority remains the health and safety of our volunteers and clients. To ensure all CDC guidelines are met, we plan to offer two models of tax filing services for Tax Season 2021: 1) CONTACTLESS IN-PERSON – working onsite alongside other volunteers to file returns dropped off in advance by clients; and 2) VIRTUAL – serving remotely from your personal computer to file returns submitted virtually by clients.
We rely on dedicated volunteers to support this impactful anti-poverty work. Whether you have professional financial experience, are studying in a related field, or are excited to gain new skills, we want YOUR help this tax season! Food Bank provides free training and basic IRS tax certification to allow volunteers of all professional backgrounds to get involved.
