NJ Free Tax Assistance Locations

*COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") Announcement: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you must have an appointment to receive assistance at a VITA site this year. No walk-ins are permitted, unless otherwise noted.  

This year, VITA tax preparation programs around the state will be handled differently. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many of VITA volunteers are either working remotely or limiting their in-person availability. Also, many of the typical VITA sites have closed to the public leaving limited sites that can accommodate in-person tax intake and finalization. 

AARP tax assistance sites are similarly constrained and availability at these sites is changing daily. For this reason, we have decided not to include AARP listings in our tax assistance locations this year. For the most current listing of AARP locations, visit the 2021 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. 


As we learn of virtual assistance that is starting to become available, we will list the details below.
