Many in Westchester are receiving free filing help this tax season.

The Westchester Putnam Workforce Development Board is now offering tax preparation at no cost.

The program is free for people who make less than $54,000 a year.

"They can call 2-1-1; they can make an appointment, they can also find out what documents they need to bring with them to the appointment," says O.J. Yizar, director of Westchester Putnam Workforce Development Board.

The program runs through April 17.
