New York State Volunteer Firefighter/Ambulance Worker Tax Credit
As tax season approaches, members are reminded to ask their tax preparers about the New York State Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers Credit. The credit is available to all active volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers that were volunteers for the entire 2013 calendar year, and were residents of New York State for the above time period. The credit entitles the volunteer to a $200 credit on their state income taxes or $400 for a married couple filing jointly where both spouses are eligible for the credit.
