Thank you for joining us for another week in review.
Happy Valentine's Day! We hope that all of you had a healthy dose of love, friendship and companionship on this wonderful day.
The application for the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is finally open! SYEP provides youth between ages 14 and 24 with career exploration opportunities and paid work experience each summer. Through this program, participants can explore different interests and career pathways, develop productive workplace habits, and engage in learning experiences that strengthen their social, civic, and leadership skills. To apply, click here.
Tax Season is upon us. Single-filing New Yorkers who earned $56,000 or less in 2022, or families who earned $80,000 or less, are encouraged to file their taxes for free using NYC Free Tax Prep. NYC Free Tax Prep provides free, professional tax preparation that can help New Yorkers keep their full refund, including valuable tax credits, like the newly enhanced New York City Earned Income Tax Credit (NYC EITC). The new NYC Free Tax Prep for self-employed New Yorkers will also provide income tax services to freelance workers and small businesses.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at email@example.com.
