 Relieve your income tax stress with FREE income tax return preparation and e-file
Keep your whole refund--no fees!

Union College economics students with IRS training and certification as IRS Certified VITA/TCE Volunteer Preparers will prepare and e-file free income tax returns again in 2018.   Since opening in 2005, Union College students have prepared and e-filed over a thousand returns for Schenectady working families and senior citizens, resulting in millions of dollars in tax refunds and hundreds of thousands of dollars in saved tax preparation fees.
With direct deposit available, your refund can be directly deposited in your bank account in less than two weeks.  Click here for eligibility requirements and  what to bring to your appointment.
