Free Tax Services Arrive on MCC Campus

On May 10, 2017

Tax season is upon us. The last day to file taxes is April 18. You can get your taxes done for free at the Middlesex County College campus in New Brunswick. This is a new initiative sponsored by the College and United Way of Central Jersey.

If you made less than $64,000 in 2016, you can save up to $300 by avoiding a paid tax preparer. IRS-certified volunteers will assist in the free tax services at locations throughout the area.

The initiative also helps taxpayers receive tax credits and refunds such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a tax benefit for working people with low to moderate income. The Premium Tax Credit (PTC) is a refundable credit that helps eligible individuals and families to cover the premiums for health insurance purchased through health insurance marketplaces. The Child/Childcare credit is a tax credit for the costs of care for a qualifying individual to look for work. For more information, visit the one of the Middlesex County College campuses, particularly in New Brunswick, located at 140 New Street.

You can schedule an appointment Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Call 732-745-8866 ext. 123 or leave a message for a call to arrange a specific time. You can also contact the United Way of Central Jersey, by calling 732-247-3727 ext. 216. You can also prepare and electronically file Federal and State returns for free at http://www.myfreetaxes.com.
