Better options for tax time: Millions of N.Y.ers can now file for free

Over the next several weeks, millions of Americans will sit down to file their taxes, whether on paper, with the help of a CPA, or, as will be the case for most, online through a private company. One of the few issues that nearly every American can agree on is that filing your taxes has become too complicated and too expensive, and we need a better path forward.
