Tax Filing Information
Tax Day is April 15
Taxpayers can use a portal on the IRS website (www.irs.gov) to electronically prepare a 2020 return for free. A portal to prepare a New York State return for free is on the NYS Department of Tax and Finance’s website (https://www.tax.ny.gov). Taxpayers who have an adjusted gross income of $72,000 or less can also electronically file for free using the portals.
You can also check the status of a refund or your Economic Impact Payment (EIP) on the portal. The EIP is also known as the “stimulus check”. The IRS EIP call center, (800) 919-9835, can also provide information about your EIP.
The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York has a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic to assist with income tax questions and problems. The Clinic’s services are free of charge. The Clinic does not generally provide tax preparation services. If you have a question about an income tax matter, please contact our LASNNY Legal Line by calling (833) 628-0087.
