Tax Help Available At Newark Center

Irvington Herald — Thursday, February 23, 2012

The Economic Security Center at 23 West Park St., Newark is now open.

New Jersey Citizen Action's Free Tax Preparation and Benefits Center provides free tax preparation to help families file tax returns and claim tax refunds from the federal and state governments.

The center will also provide free, confidential benefits counseling to help individuals and families get information on public programs for which they qualify. These include food stamps, health insurance, heating and utility-bill assistance. In 2011, the center provided free benefits screening to help lowincome families receive more than $2.1 million in benefits.

In keeping with NJCA's mission to increase economic opportunities for New Jersey's low- to moderate-income families and individuals, the Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Initiative brings money into Essex County's urban communities.
