New Brunswick residents get help on filing their taxes from Rutgers students

Rutgers University accounting majors are providing help to New Brunswick residents to make sure their yearly forms are accurate and can yield substantial tax relief.

Sponsored by the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, the free service is offered to people who cannot afford to see a licensed accountant.

While this program is being offered, measures are about to be taken to decrease the state's $4 billion budget gap. Acting Governor Richard Codey (D-NJ) has given thought to different ways to fix the budget problem, including cutting back tax breaks for New Jersey residents.

The governor is expected to make his final decision on March 1 during his State of the State address.
