On September 25, 2019 I came to the United Way in Milltown N.J. for tax help. Years 2016,2017 and 2018, Obviously nervous and not sure of how things would turn out. The experts who volunteer there helped me with my taxes and made me feel relaxed during the process. I would sincerely recommend there services to anyone who is in need of a friendly conversation and of course tax help.

Tax issues can be very stressful, but this office greeted me with a smile, educated me and gave all the tools I needed to resolve. Anyone living pay check to pay check and/or busy schedule; I highly recommend United Way.

going into the office,I was worried about my tax status with several years of unfiled taxes. Clear and easy no debt but a fifty dollar return. That is better than owing thousand. Thank you United Way, i can sleep better now.

I had put into disability and waited 7 long years to be accepted. I had lost my home by that time and was homeless for 4 years. Just making it through the day with some kind of shelter and food for the day is a lot in that condition. Finally when the disability came I got a home which was affordable. During all this time I had never thought about getting my income taxes done. Ten years went by, I was getting notices from them. I couldn't afford to have them all done.I happened to find out that united way helps a person with this particular problem.I called their number and a lovely lady answered the phone and gave me an appointment. She and others helped me to get all ten of my income taxes done. They put a lot of work into helping me. I can't thank them enough.

It all started when I went to my usual tax guy, but he botched my tax returns! I called the IRS for help and was guided to the United Way in Milltown, NJ. The staff are super professional and so understanding, I felt like I was sitting with a good friend. I am so glad that it was recommended for me to visit this location, I will definitely be back next year!! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would give a million!!! I really enjoyed my visit ❣️

My wife and I are recently retired and having a very difficult time navigating filing our 2018 tax return and the impact of social security and the ACA. The IRS website provided free help to seniors over 65 and I was directed to United Way of Central Jersey. After meeting with the volunteer who did a wonderful job, we were directed to the manager who finalized our return and spent over an hour to do so. We had been seeking the free IRS service for seniors and didn't realize the United Way was intended for lower income (even though our retirement income is well below the cap, our intent had been to seek help for seniors). Nevertheless, the manager and everyone at United Way were very nice and very helpful.

So my fiancé goes to get her taxes done on 4/9. On 4/11 she decides to have another party complete them so she attempts to get them back. She is told no and they are already prepared and will file an extension if need be pending a document. The deadline is today 4/17. No one has returned a phone call, an email...nothing after 6 or 7 attempts at reaching them to obtain a status as to what is going on. Is this place for real??? This has to be fraud? Refusing to give back personal tax docs and then not having the decency to get back to someone after refusing and saying your taking care of it!!!! HORRIBLE

One of the most poorly run organizations I've ever encountered. They don't seem to have any comprehension of what their role should be.
