Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

VITA - Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program  

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program with United Way of Central Jersey offers free tax help to people who generally make $65,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

For the 2018 tax season 156 volunteers spent 4,039 hours and prepared over 4,800 Federal and State returns. Residents received $3.16 million in Federal and State tax refunds, over $950,000 in EITC (earned income tax credit), $517,689 in Child Tax Credit and $123,920 in education credits.
