At the Carter Burden/Roosevelt Island Senior Center: Free Tax Help for Seniors
Carter Burden Outreach Director Hallie Shapiro and independent senior advocate Louella Streitz, best known for her work with DASH, jointly made the announcement.
"We do taxes that are in scope," explains Streitz. That means for low to middle income seniors over 65. But, she adds, "Anyone can walk in to ask questions, and we do not turn away people no matter the age if they are in scope."
To find out if you're "in scope," stop by and ask a counselor.
"We are AARP certified volunteers," Streitz advises.
"There are flyers at the senior center giving additional details.
Tax help is available on a first come first serve basis, and you must bring a government issued photo ID, such as a drivers license or IDNYC card, and an original Social Security card.
Caution: a lot of scammers, especially targeting seniors, are out to con you out of your money. The IRS will never call you on the telephone or send you an email. Hang up on calls immediately and never respond to emails involving your taxes. If either happens, contact RIOC's Public Safety Department at 550 Main Street immediately or call (212) 832-4545. They are available 24 hours a day.
