Campus Community

Posted: Tuesday, February 1, 2022

Free Tax-Prep Program Offered February-April

In partnership with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, the Civic and Community Engagement Office will offer free self-assisted tax return preparation sessions. This facilitated self-assistance tax services opportunity will allow you to complete and file your New York state and federal taxes. Department of Taxation and Finance staff members will provide an overview of the computer software, and you'll have 90 minutes to two hours to complete your filing with small group support from their volunteers.  

Sessions are open to any member of the campus or Buffalo community. Please share this information with students, alumni, and community partners.

Register on the CCE website for your 90-minute to two-hour session at 8:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. on February 11, 18, or 25; March 4, 11, 18, or 25; or April 1, 8, or 15

Registration is required.

Again this year, all sessions with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance staff and volunteers will be via video conference.

You can join sessions virtually from your home, office, or dorm room February 11–April 15 if you have access to the Internet, a computer or tablet, and a webcam with a speaker and microphone to meet with the volunteers.

If you do not have access to those pieces of technology, please register for an on-campus session between March 4 and April 15 to access a reserved computer lab space. Please refrain from registering for an on-campus session if you have access to the appropriate technology. We are reserving this space for members of our Buffalo and campus communities who are most vulnerable.

Capacity is limited, and advance registration is required. A confirmation email and an email with details to join the video conference session from home or using the computer lab will be sent to you a day or two before your registered session.

For details on what to bring to your session and answers to other frequently asked questions, please visit the CCE website.

Other locations for other areas of the state and WNY community are listed on our website as well.

Further questions can be directed to Civic and Community Engagement, (716) 878-3919.
