The deadline to file your 2018 income taxes is on Monday, April 15, 2019. With new tax laws in place, filing your taxes can be confusing. Should you claim the standard deduction or itemize?

But why pay more than you need to simply because you didn’t understand the tax forms? Receive free tax prep assistance in Somerset County between now and April 15th.
