Free Tax Preparation

Click Here to Schedule Appointment for Drop Off Click Here to Submit Documents to Complete Taxes Virtually

Chhaya is proud to offer free tax preparation services to community members earning under $68,000 with dependents, and under $48,000 without dependents.

For your convenience, we offer two ways to file your taxes: by scheduling a drop off appointment at our Jackson Heights or Richmond Hill office, or by uploading your information for a virtual appointment.

For faster service with no required appointment, we encourage you to virtually submit your documents. 

Required documents for tax preparation:
  • All 2020 tax forms (W-2, 1099, 1098-E, etc.)
  • If you claimed unemployment benefits please have your 1099-G form. You can find it by visiting, logging into your account and searching for “1099-G”
  • Photo IDs (including spouse and dependents)
  • Social security and ITIN cards (including spouse and dependents)
  • Direct Deposit information (account and routing number)
  • List of expenses if you are self-employed

In compliance with COVID-19 precautions, Chhaya will not be completing tax returns in person.
