Free Income Tax Assistance Across Broome County

Posted:
Tax season is upon us and if you find yourself a little lost or in need of some help, don't worry you're not alone and free help is available.

Free income tax assistance is available at a few locations across Broome County from February 2nd to April 15th.

The program is designed for taxpayers with middle to low incomes with special attention for people 60 years and older.

On Friday at the Oakdale Mall dozens came out to get some help with their taxes.

"Obviously we're free, there's absolutely no charge so people can come in. We e-file them so if they do have a refund they can get it within a week, two weeks, maybe a month," said Tom Griffiths, a tax preparer.

Sponsors for this event include the Broome County Office for Aging and the AARP. Other than the Oakdale Mall tax assistance can be received at the Broome County Library and a variety of senior centers through out the county.
