Free Tax Assistance In Mercer County Sites

Many sites throughout Mercer County will offer free income tax preparation assistance to help residents prepare and file their 2013 taxes. Service is offered at most sites from early February through mid-April unless otherwise noted.

The AARP Foundation provides Tax-Aides to assist people with low to moderate incomes with 2013 tax preparation at Mercer County Connection, libraries, and other sites. Local sites include Nassau Presbyterian Church, Princeton Public Library, Princeton Senior Resource Center, and West Windsor Senior Center. For additional sites and more information, visit www.aarp.org/money/taxes/aarp_taxaide/.

The IRS VITA Program generally offers free tax help to people who make $50,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals in local communities.
