NJ Free Tax Assistance Locations

*COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") Announcement: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, please follow directions listed and/or call agency prior to visiting. 

This year you may find that VITA tax preparation programs around the state have COVID-19 restrictions. Many VITA volunteers are either working remotely, limiting their in-person availability, or opting for drop-off services. 

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides free tax preparation in different ways – in-person, low-contact, or contact-free – depending on what service is available in your area. Some sites can provide service in one or two visits, or you may not need to visit a site at all, with all interactions taking place online. For the most current listing of AARP locations, visit the 2022 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Service.

VITA sites listed below are actively helping clients this year. Look for the location in your area and follow the instructions provided for that site or call the site for further instructions. The VITA program’s goal is to complete your tax return in a timely manner. Submitting ALL the information and documentation required to complete the tax return will hasten the process.
