Unfortunately, due to space, capacity, and new IRS VITA limitations, UNHP is unable to offer the free income tax program in 2022. This decision was hard to make and we are saddened that a workaround was not possible (We really tried!). UNHP is committed to providing information and other resources to help you file your taxes for free, file correctly, and help you understand what income and special 2021 benefits you need to declare and what credits you may be eligible for.

UNHP Tax Tips

Start Getting Ready Now!

Gather all the documents you need, find last year’s return, and collect your 2021 income paperwork, such as W-2, Social Security 1099, as it comes in the mail or download it from online sources. Here is a list of what you will need.

Find an NYC Free Tax prep site and reach out. In-person appointments may be hard to find this year with ongoing Covid limitations, so start early and be persistent. If you have a computer, an email and are able to upload documents you may be able to do your taxes virtually for free or with a Facilitated Self Assistance link.

Learn more about who needs to file, filing with an ITIN, what needs to be declared, what credits you may be eligible for, and new information for this year’s tax filing. Learn about your rights as a tax filer and what you need to know about your tax preparer. UNHP will be covering all of these topics in our special tax edition of ASK UNHP, a live bilingual Zoom webinar scheduled for January 27th. Register here
