If you are comfortable with numbers, like solving puzzles, and enjoy helping other people, volunteer tax preparation may be just the thing for you. United Way of Northern New Jersey offers free tax preparation services to lower-income households throughout our communities. Last year volunteer tax preparers completed over 5,000 tax returns.
