Tax season calendar

You’ve probably heard it before: “The only guarantees in life are death and taxes.”

And taxes can be quite overwhelming, especially if you’re filling them out for the first time.

But help is available, as Medgar Evers College and the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance will host a series of workshops to help you prepare and e-file your income tax returns.

Every Friday, there will be free online sessions held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

You must pre-register and schedule an appointment.

For information, a list of necessary documents, or to schedule a session, email Adela Durham at or 234-421-1207, or visit

Before the appointment, here are some quick tips:

  • You must have access to a smart phone or webcam to verify your identity. 
  • You only need basic computer skills and an active email account. 
  • If you earned $79,000 or less in 2023, you qualify. 
  • Use your own laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
  • Safe and secure online tax software.
