During the tax preparation season, Senior Citizens can call for an appointment to schedule assistance with tax preparation. Appointments in Rockaway Township are located at the Senior Center. Free assistance in the preparation of New Jersey Income Tax Returns is available for taxpayers through VITA/TCE.
VITA volunteers will prepare FREE tax returns for income levels up to $130,000 (No UBER, LIFT, GrubHub etc). throughout the year.
These sites are staffed by volunteers that are trained to prepare both Federal and State returns. Many of these sites prepare tax returns on computers and utilize electronic filing. Electronic filing, or e-filing, is quick and accurate. It allows for faster processing than filing a paper return.
VITA sites also offer assistance in filing for Federal and State Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) for those who qualify for these benefits.
During the tax season, you can find a VITA site near you by calling the IRS at 1-800-906-9887. For an AARP TCE site near you, please access the web site for the Tax-Aide program or call the National AARP office at 1-888-AARP-NOW (1-888-227-7669).
Please contract Thai Nguyen at 973-627-7200 ext. 2054 for an appointment.
