Looking for a County tax return preparer with low cost

Okay help me direct me here years ago there used to be free in the county to those that couldn't afford an accountant. Are there any of them still around I usually do my own taxes but there's been a complication with my IRS thanks to two Banks screwing it up on me and I need to get that money back from Washington. I hate to go to h&r block and give them like $200 when I only have a few items that are complicated done, and the rest you could just breeze through.
Thanks in advance.

Allstate homeowners insurance could go up more than 55%

"Allstate is warning customers their homeowners insurance premiums could be hiked more than 55% after the insurer asked the state to approve a series of rate hikes. Allstate broke the news to customers in an undated letter that was mailed sometime after its most recent request to regulators. It asked for an increase of 36.9% in a filing with the Department of Banking and Insurance on Feb. 14. The hike is in addition to several other increases, approved in late 2023 and early 2024, of 6.9%, 4.9% and 7.0%, it said."

For Allstate customers here what, if any, companies are you... More

Missing Kitten (Found)

My Grandaughter's kitten has disappeared. Iggy is a young kitten, mostly black hair with a spot of white hair between his back legs. He lived on Canal Lane but could be up in the Hills of Dependence or Second Street.

My Granddaughter is very upset and is hoping that he is returned or finds his way home.

Thank you.

Anyone who's been a local for decades care to shed some light on Hackettstown urban legends, interesting people, weird incidents, or crazy stories?

Aldi Coming To Our Area

Aldi Coming To Our AreaFor all those Aldi fans, they will be building one in Mount Olive just west of the former Trading Post on route 46 eastbound side. Opposite where HomeGoods was Dino's Pizza, Dunkin' Donuts etc.
I have only ever been to one in Germany. I guess I'll stop in when it's complete.
