July 15 is the deadline to file your taxes. Usually, it’s April 15, but the pandemic forced the move to today.
The New York State Tax Department will have representatives available until 7 tonight to help you with any last-minute filing questions. The number is 518-457-5181.
The state tax department is also encouraging taxpayers who earned $69,000 or less in 2019 to prepare and file their taxes for free through the state’s Free File software found on the tax department’s website. The state says more than 221,000 taxpayers have already done so, a 40 percent increase from last year.
