Why is this happening?

To reduce the spread of coronavirus, many of NJ’S

VITA sites are closed. To maintain some level of

service, we are offering virtual tax assistance to those

who still need to file.


How will this work?

1. Complete the online intake survey at the top of

this page. The survey will ask you to:

❏ Fill out basic personal information,

❏ Upload pictures of your tax forms, and

❏ Choose an appointment time.


2. A VITA preparer will call you to schedule an appointment

and complete your return with you over the

phone. Another VITA preparer will do a quality review with

you work before filing.
