“They got as much for me as I could have possibly gotten,” she said in comparing Newark Now with tax prep services that charge a fee. “The only difference was it didn’t cost me $39.95.”
While Merrill was getting her taxes prepared she noticed signs for financial aid counseling, also offered by the group.
“They were kind enough to walk me through the FAFSA process and give me some guidance,” Merrill said, referring to the form college students fill out to become eligible for low-interest federal loans and aid. “I went back yesterday and did my registration fee for Essex County College for the fall.”
So great. Those folks over at Newark Now just won’t quit changing the world.
