Tax Counselors Ready to Help Out This Tax Season


The County Office of Volunteer Services and AARP have teamed up to provide free tax-counseling assistance for preparing federal and New Jersey income tax returns for seniors, residents with disabilities and lower income residents(but is open to everybody).  Approximately 70 tax-preparation volunteers provide direct support, working at six different sites within Somerset County-Montgomery, Raritan, Manville, Bridgewater, Franklin and Green Brook to assist in electronic filing of taxes.  Volunteers can also assist with preparing Property Tax Reimbursement forms for homeowners 65 years and old who meet certain eligibility requirements.  If you would like to take advantage of this service please call the Somerset County Office of Volunteer Services at 908-541-5710 for an appointment after Feb. 1st (no early bird, please).
