Free Tax Preparation

Submit Documents Schedule Appointment

Chhaya is proud to offer free tax preparation services for 2018, 2019, and 2020 tax returns to community members earning under $68,000 with dependents, and under $48,000 without dependents.

For those that have no income and are not required to file a tax return, we will be able to assist you with completing the IRS’ Non-filers tool to apply for the Advanced Child Tax Credit. 

For your convenience, we offer two ways to file your taxes.

  1. Virtually submit your documents
  2. Schedule a drop off appointment at our Jackson Heights or Richmond Hill office

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


Required documents for tax preparation:

  • All 2020, 2019, and/or 2018 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 dol.ny.gov, 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


Your return will be completed in two weeks.

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