In partnership with the Food Bank for NYC’s Tax Assistance Program, Woodside on the Move (WOTM) is proud to provide low-income New Yorkers with free tax preparation services, helping them get the refunds and credits to which they are entitled. This includes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which alone can be worth up to $8,463 for families. You earned it, WOTM and the Food Bank for NYC will help you claim it!

In order to receive the services, you must have earned $54,000 or less WITH dependents or $30,000 or less with NO dependents.
