Free Income Tax Filing Assistance
Due to COVID-19 shutdowns and restrictions, the 2020 income tax filing season will look very different. The library again partnered with Beta Alpha Psi at the Rutgers Business School, as well as the United Way of Central Jersey (UWCJ), for the annual VITA program; this year, however, there will be no in-person tax filing at the library. Filing will be done remotely after documents were dropped off, by appointment only, in the VITA lockbox in the library's lower/side vestibule. This service began in early February (though the start date was delayed due to the winter weather) and ended on April 8, 2021. We advise anyone seeking income tax filing assistance after that date to visit the UWCJ website for more information.
The library staff has no way of accessing the contents of the lockbox, and is not able to answer any specific tax filing questions. Please read the details listed in Form 14446 if you would like more information on this remote tax filing process. Please visit the UWCJ website for more information, or call them at 732-247-3730. Note: April 30 is the last day for new appointments or drop-offs for the UWCJ.
