Thank you for joining us for another week in review.
We hope that everyone had a restful Presidents' Day weekend.
Our 2023 State of the Borough address is right around the corner! We are so excited to join with you all to celebrate the Bronx and all that is to come. We have made so many strides in our quest for a better Bronx and we cannot wait to share with you all our plans for the future. As we prepare for our first State of the Borough address, we encourage you to join us virtually if you have not RSVP'd. Don't miss out! We have some very special announcements planned for the big day. (Pending approval of flyer, it will be added directly below)
On Friday, February 24th from 9am -11am at Caridad Restaurant Kingsbridge, our office, in collaboration with Councilmember Pierina Sanchez and the BOEDC, will be hosting a Commercial Lease Assistance Workshop for the merchants along the Kingsbridge corridor. This workshop will have an educational component for merchants to learn more about their rights as it relates to their leases (new leases, lease extension, back rent, etc.). Merchants will have the opportunity to connect 1:1 with an attorney for a free legal consultation. Businesses with or without leases are welcome to attend. Breakfast will be provided.
The Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) will host their next public board meeting on Wednesday, March 8th at 6:30 p.m. via Webex and in-person at the Bronx Community Board 12 Office located at 4101 White Plains Rd. This meeting will take place in The Bronx and the discussion will focus on the relationship between Bronx residents and the NYPD. To attend virtually, click here.
Lastly, 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.
