Tax Preparation

​Phipps Neighborhoods, in partnership with VITA, offers free tax preparation to individuals who worked or received unemployment in the previous year, if you earned $64,000 for a family, $45,000 for an individual, or less last tax year.

In 2020, Phipps Neighborhoods will not be offering Tax Prep in Melrose. For all residents interested in Free Tax Prep and Tax Prep Assistance, please contact 311 to find the nearest VITA NYC Free Tax Prep site.

In 2017, Phipps Neighborhoods completed over 2,000 tax returns with over $3.8 million Earned Income Tax Credits for filers.
