NYC Tax Time Campaign

Since 2002, DCA has coordinated the City's annual tax time campaign to:
  • Alert eligible New Yorkers about free tax filing options and encourage them to take advantage of these free options.
  • Raise awareness about refund-boosting tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the NYC Child Care Tax Credit (NYC CCTC).

Public Awareness Campaign

DCA is grateful to have the support of our tax season outreach collaborators who help us reach eligible filers. Over the past 14 years, we have distributed tens of millions of pieces of campaign literature to City agencies, post offices, public libraries, schools, and others, and placed advertisements on the subways and buses, in bus shelters and phone kiosks, in McDonald's, and in dozens of newspapers, including community and ethnic media outlets, and on several television channels and radio stations.
