The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program will be offered for 2021. There will be no in-person appointments and all materials will be submitted via drop-off. One location for drop off will be Skylands Medical in Franklin. Calls will be made starting the 3rd week in January. For more information call 973-784-4900 ext. 204.
