VITA - Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

United Way of Hunterdon County offers free assistance with tax return preparation for low-to-moderate income Hunterdon County area residents. In 2021, 64 volunteers in our community helped to file 1,450 returns, resulting in more than $2.6 million in refunds to Hunterdon County residents and employees. Together, we ensure our hardworking neighbors who are in poverty or living paycheck to paycheck as ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) get back every dollar they are due - putting them on a path to financial stability.

We have 5 ways for you to get your tax return prepared for FREE:

  1. In-person tax preparation appointments (temporarily suspended due to rise in Covid)
  2. Scan & Go tax appointments: a 2 appointment process for intake and finalization. Clients must be vaccinated to come inside building to work with a preparer.
    • Alternative for non-vaccinated clients: Curbside appointments: a 2 appointment process for intake and finalization where non-vaccinated clients wait in their car for assistance.
  3. 100% Virtual tax preparation: a completely online process
  4. Free TaxSlayer account: FREE Federal and State returns
  5. Use myfreetaxes.com to file your taxes
