Bread & Life’s free tax prep to secure millions in returns for people in need

St. John’s Bread & Life Program is offering free tax preparation to lower income families (earning under $50,000/year) and individuals (earning under $18,000/year) until April 15.

St. John’s University student volunteers, who are supervised by IRS-certified tax preparers, will use their accounting skills to work with tax software that will be similar to what they will use in the future. Assistance will be provided with 1040 and 1040 ES forms and for those who would like to file for special tax credits.

Volunteers will be on-hand Mondays through Thursdays from 1-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be no tax assistance on Fridays and Sundays.

St. John’s Bread and Life is located at 795 Lexington Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, between Malcolm X Boulevard and Patchen Avenue.
