Free Tax Preparation
United Way Can Help
Beginning February 1, United Way of Northern New Jersey provides FREE and secure virtual tax preparation for ALICE individuals and families and those in poverty.
During tax filing season, those without sufficient knowledge of tax laws or the resources to hire a tax preparer can be at a disadvantage. Individuals and families might miss out on programs, credits, and deductions that could help lower their tax liability or result in a refund that could help pay down bills or create savings for future emergencies. We ensure all appropriate deductions and credits are claimed to maximize refunds.
United Way partners with the IRS, Norwescap, Greater Providence Missionary Baptist Church, and a corps of community volunteers who have completed extensive IRS training to serve as tax law-certified preparers. This service is available to individuals and families only. Businesses and landlords are not eligible for this service.
Earn It. Keep It. Save It.
From tax and savings tools to career coaching and financial education, United Way is committed to helping families on their path toward financial stability. Let’s get started!
