THE BRONX - Bronx families have one week left to claim tax refunds and tuition tax credits owed to them.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is urging Bronx residents to claim the refunds as soon as possible because they only have until tax day, April 18.

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, up to 57 percent of New Yorkers didn't take advantage of a college tuition tax credit last year.
