About

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GROW OUR TAX TEAM!

United Way is recruiting volunteers to become IRS-Certified tax preparers for the 2018 tax season. Volunteer opportunities are available in Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Warren and Suburban Essex Counties in New Jersey.

No experience is necessary! Attend a full-day or 2 half-day training program that provides all the information needed to be a prepare both federal and state tax returns.

United Way of Northern New Jersey teams up with community partners to provide free tax preparation for ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and poverty-level families in our communities. Last year through this program, more than 160 community volunteers prepared almost 6,000 free tax returns at libraries, community centers, and places of worship across northern New Jersey. Volunteers helped filers claim more than $2 million in tax credits, resulting in $6 million in tax refunds.
