Free Income Tax Filing Assistance

Due to Rutgers suspending activities as of March 12, 2020, the students from Beta Alpha Psi at the Rutgers Business School are no longer available to help with income tax filing at the library. Unfortunately, we do not know of other sites offering free, in-person filing assistance at this time. The United Way of Central Jersey is, however, as of April 1, offering a New Online Platform. Please scroll down for more information.
