New York City School Tax Credit

You can claim the New York City School Tax Credit if you:

  • Are a New York City resident or part-year resident and
  • Cannot be claimed as a dependent on another taxpayer's federal income tax return

The amount of the credit varies. You must claim this credit directly on your New York State personal income tax return. If you are not required to file a State income tax return, you must file Form NYC-210 to get the credit.
