Do You Qualify for AARP Free Tax Prep? Make an Appointment:

By Admin3


Livingston Senior, Youth & Leisure Services is now accepting appointments for free tax preparation services through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program.

Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation to anyone who needs it – with special attention to those who are 50 or older or have low to moderate income.

Tax-Aide volunteers are trained to assist taxpayers in filing many income tax forms and schedules. However, Tax-Aide volunteers are required to stay within scope of the tax law set by the IRS for the program.

  • You have rental income from property they own
  • You have income from a state other than New Jersey/New York
  • You have cancellation of debt other than credit card debt
  • You have distributions from a Health Savings Account (HSA)
  • You have self-employment income (e.g., file a Schedule C) with any one of the following:
    • Expenses greater than $25,000
    • Depreciation
    • Business use of the home
  • You have household employment (e.g., nanny, housekeeper, etc.) taxes to pay

Appointment Required:

If you qualify for the program, make an appointment by calling Senior, Youth & Leisure Services at 973-535-7925, press 8.
