NJ Free Tax Assistance Locations

If you live in Hunterdon, Mercer, Monmouth or Ocean County and would like to make an appointment for free tax assistance click here.

The content on this page offers a comprehensive listing of free tax assistance sites that are located throughout the state. The listing includes 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.
