A tax assistance seminar aimed at helping those affected by Superstorm Sandy is coming to Toms River's Ocean County Library branch later on March 18.
Organized by the state Treasury Department's Division of Taxation, the March 18 program from 6 to 8:15 p.m. will bring together representatives from that department, the governor's office and IRS together to help residents as they navigate the reporting of their Sandy-related losses.
"These tax assistance events will provide New Jersey residents with the opportunity to obtain free in-person guidance from tax professionals from the Division and the Internal Revenue Service on a wide range of Sandy-related issues," said State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff in a statement.
Representatives will also provide assistance to recover lost tax documents and reconstruct lost personal or business records. Office of Unclaimed Property personnel will be on-hand to aid with searches for such items as forgotten stock money, lost paychecks, and bank lock box contents.
Additionally, the state’s Division of Taxation, Local Property Tax office will answer questions about property tax and appeal rights due to damages caused by Sandy, according to the library.
A mobile computer lab with eight computers and free WiFi access for those who bring their own laptops or mobile electronics will be available for use, according to the library.
Locally, the program will also come to Brick's Ocean County Library branch on Tuesday, March 26 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
