January 17, 2019, Howell, N.J. – Having an accountant navigating the ins and outs of tax returns on your behalf can relieve stress and may result in a larger refund – but many folks cannot afford professional help. That’s why Edward Licciardi, founder and owner of Central Jersey Tax Services (CJTS) is seeking 20 individuals/families (see eligibility below) who could benefit from free income tax return preparation. However, finding those in need proved challenging last year.
Last year, after posting an announcement offering the free tax preparation on Howell and Jackson Facebook pages as well on that of CJTS, less than 20 inquiries were received. Yet, there are many families that make less than $35,000 in Howell Township (7.9% of families or 1,092 of them) and Jackson Township (8.7%/1,348) in 2017, according to the American Community Survey. Clearly there is an issue in spreading the word.
Ed is turning to the media for help in raising awareness amongst the people who are most in need in Howell and Jackson Townships.
