Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person appointments. A new three-step process allows taxes to be prepared remotely.

Eligible residents should call 551-262-0843, and personnel will indicate what documents need to be gathered.

In step two, eligible residents will gather the appropriate documents.

In step three, eligible residents will mail their documents to Sacklow & Acox, CPAs, LLC at 295 Montgomery Street, Bloomfield, NJ 07003.

Documents can also be emailed to SaccoTaxes@gmail.com.
