Free Tax-Filing Services Update

The Civic and Community Engagement Office and the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance have suspended their in-person tax services on the Buffalo State campus because of coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns.

However, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance has developed tutorial videos to assist faculty, staff, student, alumni, and community members in filing their return for free in order to continue supporting tax filing during this uncertain time.

The videos are located on the department's website and will provide step-by-step guidance on

  • getting started and using the software,
  • selecting the right software and creating an account,
  • navigating the different sections of the return, and
  • getting all the deductions and credits you qualify for.

The NYS Department of Taxation and Finance website also offers other resources and information that includes access to other free tax-filing software options. Please e-mail questions to

In addition, New York State recently announced an extension of the state deadline for personal income tax filings to July 15 to match the extended federal due date.
