UTICA- The deadline to file taxes is Tuesday, April 17th, and local organizations offer help to last minute filers.
The Resource Center for Independent Living offers help to people who make $54,000 or less a year and are booked for tax season. Officials with the organization recommend residents make their appointments with professionals in January or February when they get their tax documents.
They also said if residents don't have their tax documents ready by the deadline, they can always file for an extension. If they can get them done before, online websites are highly recommended. "It's really easy," said Georgianna Sanges with RCIL. She said all residents need to do is answer questions, and have their tax documents ready. "Upload a picture of you W-2 when prompted, and then it will fill in the rest of the information for you," she added.
RCIL is open Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., for residents if they need to use a computer. Employees recommend to call beforehand.
