STATE – Taxpayer Assistance Centers in several New Jersey locations will be open on Saturday, March 27, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. This will give struggling taxpayers more opportunity to work directly with IRS employees to resolve issues they may be facing for the first time this year.
During the expanded Saturday hours, taxpayers will be able to address economic hardship issues, make payment arrangements or get help claiming any of the special tax breaks in last year’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, including the:
- Homebuyer tax credit
- American Opportunity Credit
- Making Work Pay credit
- Expanded Earned Income Tax Credit
Participating IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers include:
- 57 Haddonfield Road, Cherry Hill
- 100 Dey Place, Edison
- 20 Washington Place, Newark
- 1 Kalisa Way, Paramus
- 200 Federal Plaza, Paterson
In addition to IRS help, community organizations partner with the IRS. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs assist people who earned $49,000 or less and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs assist individuals 60 and over with their 2009 income tax return preparation and electronic filing. Many of these sites have Saturday hours while others offer assistance at various times during the week. To locate the partner sites in this area call 1-800-906-9887.
