NJ Free Tax Assistance Locations

This Free Tax Assistance Locations page offers a listing of free tax assistance sites that are located throughout the state. The listing will include AARP Foundation sites, United Way VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) sites, and military tax assistance sites, as we learn of those locations. The United Way VITA sites (upper and lower case listings) and AARP Foundation sites (often in CAPS) are open to the general public. Military sites are noted as such in each entry that is so designated. These sites are devoted to assisting military members and their families. The listing changes frequently at the beginning of each year. Check back often to learn of new locations. 

Use the drop-down menu to filter the list by county.
