A program of Trinity’s Family and Neighborhood Resource Centers (FNRC) and the United Way of the Capital Region.
Trinity’s certified staff and volunteers will prepare and file your federal and state taxes for FREE, if you make $56,000 or less…and there is NO CATCH. Keep more of your money, and let us find you the biggest refund you are entitled to.
Taxes are prepared by online appointment only. No walk-ins.
We have IRS certified preparers who take appointments and prepare returns free of charge. This is a service available to any community member who meets the income eligibility.
We are currently booking appointments for individuals; dates through May 17.
To get an appointment, call our Arbor Hill Center at 518-463-1516!
For those of you who are familiar with this service, it will look a little different this year:
- All tax preparation will be contactless. In most cases, we will be doing returns 100% virtual. This will require the taxpayer to upload their documents into an online platform. One of our tax preparers will then use those documents to prepare the taxes remotely.
- If there is a situation where someone cannot utilize the online platform, we have a limited number of slots that would allow the individual to drop their materials off at Trinity and pick them up at a later date. Even with this method, the tax preparer will be doing a contact-less return.
- Individuals will be scheduled with appointment weeks (in most cases), rather than appointment dates/times. Because VITA is remote/online, this will allow flexibility for both the taxpayer and the tax preparer to ensure everything is correct.
We’ve got an incredibly strong group of tax preparers this year; all been with us for a number of years and are looking forward to another awesome VITA season.
