OLEAN, NY -- New York State Tax Department volunteers will help low and middle-income taxpayers file their taxes online Thursday from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Olean Public Library, 134 N. Second St. 

The free program is geared to New York taxpayers with adjusted gross household incomes of $64,000 or less in 2016 qualify. According to the tax department, the tax software helps reduce errors and ensures that valuable credits, such as Earned Income Tax credits, are claimed. The error rate for e-filed returns is 20 times lower than it is for paper returns, speeding processing and refunds.

Eligible taxpayers should bring a copy of last year’s tax return, a driver license or state-issued ID, Form W-2, and Social Security numbers to the session. A full list of required documents is posted on the Tax Department’s website at www.tax.ny.gov/fsa.

To schedule an appointment, persons must call 716-855-5302.
