Volunteer Income Tax Assistance/Tax Counseling for the Elderly
Free assistance in the preparation of New Jersey Income Tax returns is available for taxpayers through VITA/TCE. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA, is for individuals of low to moderate income, individuals with disabilities, and non-English speaking taxpayers. Tax Counseling for the Elderly, or TCE, is for individuals 60 years of age or older. These sites are staffed by volunteers who are trained to prepare both Federal and State returns. Many of these sites prepare tax returns on computers and use electronic filing. Electronic filing, or e-filing, is quick and accurate. It allows for faster processing than filing a paper return.
