These events are part of Governor Christie’s ongoing effort to bring government services directly to those who suffered damage or disruption in their lives due to Superstorm Sandy. This series of free tax assistance events around the state during February and March, the height of tax season, is organized by the Treasury Department’s Division of Taxation, to help individuals and businesses prepare their 2012 tax returns.
For the convenience of the public, the events are being held either in towns that suffered heavy damage during Sandy or adjacent communities. The assistance events will be located at libraries or municipal or other public buildings and have all been scheduled during evening or weekend hours.

“These tax assistance events will provide New Jersey residents with the opportunity to obtain free in-person guidance from tax professionals from the Division and the Internal Revenue Service on a wide range of Sandy-related issues,” said State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff.
The events are also being supported by the AARP’s Tax-Aide program and the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Experts will be available to assist residents with inquiries on how to report Sandy-related personal and business losses on their federal and New Jersey tax returns, how to deal with property tax issues caused by Sandy-related damage and how to recover lost tax documents or reconstruct lost personal or business records and many other topics.
