United Way Offers Tax Filing Help

Written By Editor on 1/16/18 | 1/16/18

Tax filing season is right around the corner! Many people don’t realize that if you meet certain
income guidelines, you can file your taxes for free yourself or have them done for you, for free!
That means that ALL of your refund comes back to you, at no cost.

The United Way of Delaware and Otsego Counties, as lead agency in the Creating Assets
Savings and Hope (CASH) Coalition, and in partnership with the IRS and SUNY Oneonta, provide
free tax preparation and filing for anyone who made $54,000 or less in tax year 2017. We
operate a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site at the First United Methodist Church at
66 Chestnut Street in Oneonta from January through April. This year’s hours will be Wednesday
evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
This site will begin appointments on January 27, 2018. Appointments for this service, although
not required, are highly recommended. You can call Catholic Charities at 607-432- 0061 to
schedule an appointment.

AARP will be doing free tax returns for seniors in Oneonta on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Fridays from 9am to 2pm and in Cooperstown on Thursdays from 9am-2pm. Call 547-4232
for an appointment.

Do you like to do your own taxes? United Way and H&R Block have partnered to offer anyone
who made $64,000 or less in 2017 a fast easy way to file your taxes at www.MyFreeTaxes.com.
CDO Workforce, at all of their locations, designates computers for the public to use on site to
file their taxes. Facilitators are available at SUNY-Delhi Sanford Hall room 148 from 10AM-2PM
on the following 7 Saturdays: 2/3-2/17 and 3/10-3/31. In addition, several public libraries in
Delaware and Otsego Counties also make computers available for use with the link to My Free
Taxes already loaded for easy access.

Don’t leave money on the table. File for free and utilize your full refund!
