Free Tax Preparation Services for Taxpayers

Free assistance in the preparation of New Jersey Income Tax Returns is available for taxpayers through VITA/TCE.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA, is for individuals of low to moderate income, individuals with disabilities, and non-English speaking taxpayers. Tax Counseling for the Elderly, or TCE, is for individuals 60 years of age or older.

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).

Site information is also available online by entering your zip code into the IRS Site Locator.
