Getting Forms

File Your Taxes Online
New Yorkers have the option of e-filing their taxes for free.  The tax filing process is made easier by having online forms, the option to use direct deposit, and pay electronically.  People who e-file can get refunds in as little as 10 days compared to 8 weeks for paper filers.  To e-file click here or for those with income exceeding $57,000 click here
Natural Disasters
New Yorkers affected by natural disasters may be eligible for tax relief.  They may qualify for a filing extension, a waiver of fees and expedited requests of previous tax returns or disaster-related casualty loss claims. 
The IRS website has more information on those impacted by Tropical Storm Lee, and Hurricane Sandy. Information can also be found in the Disaster Resource Guide
If you have any questions or problems, the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center provides face-to-face help.  Often times, you can simply walk in, no appointment required.  To make an appointment or ask questions, call the number of the nearest center, which can be found here
