The Borough of North Arlington has made arrangements with an income tax preparer to prepare Federal and State income tax returns and property tax rebate forms for qualified seniors at no charge, except for a small $10 e-file cost fee.
The IRS and the State of NJ now require all preparers to e-file tax returns.
Residents 65 or older with earned income of less than $14,000 (does not include pensions, Social Security or retirement income), and less than $2,000 in investment income (bank interest and dividends) qualify.
Renters or single family home ownership can qualify.
Preparation will be at the North Arlington Senior Center on March 26, 27, and April 14. Residents that are shut-in and cannot travel can make arrangements to have their returns prepared at their home.
Appointments and questions regarding eligibility can be made by calling at 973 953-7547. Residents are asked not to call Borough Hall regarding qualifications or appointments.
