Volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers credit

Volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers are entitled to claim this credit if you:

  • Were an active volunteer firefighter or volunteer ambulance worker for all of the tax year
  • Were a resident of New York State for all of the tax year

Note: You cannot claim this credit if you received a real property tax exemption that related to your volunteer service. However, if the property has multiple owners, the owner(s) whose volunteer service was not the basis of the exemption may be eligible to claim the credit.

How much is the credit?

The credit amount is $200 ($400 for married filing joint taxpayers where both spouses are eligible.) If the credit exceeds your tax for the year, any excess will be refunded without interest.
