Where to Get Homework Help
It’s that time of year where the nightly routine once again includes sitting down to do homework. could your child use more help (could you use more help) .
We’re going to get this list going–add to it in the comments by sharing homework resources you know!
For: Boys 3rd Grade and Up (and girls too) Location: Anywhere Cost: No Cost Time: Sunday through Thursday, 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time Subjects: Limudei Kodesh Contact Number: 216-99–TUTOR (2169988867) or 856-40-REBBI.
The hotline provides free help on school nights; dozens of boys call in weekly for help with chumash, mishnayos, and gemara. Calls are answered by talmidei chachamim who patiently explain the material and answer questions. Parents can call in too. The number to call is 216-99–TUTOR. Girls can call 845-82-GIRLS.
After the School Bell
For: Boys and Girls, Grades 1-8 Location: Anywhere Cost: $18/month to cover administrative costs. Actual tutoring is free of charge. Time: You arrange with your tutor Subjects: Limudei Kodesh and Chol Contact: Sign Up online at aftertheschoolbell.org
After the School Bell is a chesed organization that connects high school volunteers with elementary students for accessible, online/Zoom tutoring. High school students volunteer as a way to give back for the community, and parents receive the much needed homework help.
For: Girls in Lakewood area Location: Your Home Cost: About $60/session Time: See availability online Subjects: Limudei Kodesh and Chol Contact: Sign Up online at todoornj.com
To Door NJ is a paid service to make tutoring and homework help quickly accessible. Female tutors come straight to your door at the arranged time.
For: Anyone Location: Anywhere Cost: Free Subjects: All English Subjects Contact: Sign Up online at KhanAcademy.org
Khan provides free instruction on almost any subject. The courses are high quality, but unlike the resources above, the instruction is not personal. Great to catch up on classes/info that was missed. Note: As this is the only non-Jewish resource on this list, we recommend parental supervision to ensure content is appropriate.
For: Boys Grades 5-8 Location: Currently 6 locations in Lakewood, plus Miami and Detroit Cost: Free Time: Weeknights Subjects: Limudei Kodesh Contact: Sign Up online at homeworkkollel.org
Homework Kollel is a place where boys can go to make their homework and nightly learning a rewarding experience. Rather than deal with the nightly struggle of doing homework, boys enjoy being in the Homework Kollel environment, with shoel u’meishivs on hand to answer their questions, whether they learn with their father or a chavrusa. Chavrusas are also arranged for boys who don’t have one. Boys earn prizes and take part in raffles as a reward for their participation.

As school work becomes more difficult, many students need extra help to master new concepts and maintain excellent grades.
Sometimes foundation gaps in reading, writing, or math contribute to homework difficulties. Lack of effective study skills can also contribute to homework problems.
Grades & Motivation
As homework struggles are eliminated at home, and gaps in foundation skills are reinforced; students become more positive, independent, and successful in school.

About SLC Homework Help Tutoring
At SLC, our certified and experienced teachers provide students with complete academic support that is effective and unique. Whether the difficulty is in math, science, or English, we offer immediate homework help to make a demanding class easier and more manageable. At the same time, our tutors reteach and reinforce the foundation concepts a student has not mastered in the past. When students receive homework help with difficult subjects or assignments, we utilize their own textbooks and materials. As soon as practical, we use our own specialized materials to provide supplemental instruction to correct knowledge and skill gaps. Students improve grades and confidence, and build a firm foundation for future learning!
Homework help can also be combined with Study Skills instruction. Not only do students improve grades in difficult subjects, but they also learn the skills necessary for effective studying in general.

What Parents Are Saying...
Both of my boys look forward to their weekly sessions at the Somerset Learning Center – especially when they are working on projects or studying for tests. They really rely on that extra boost to help them prepare. It takes the pressure off Mom and Dad too! There are a lot fewer homework-related arguments at home. David & Michael’s mother, grades 6 & 8, Bridgewater, NJ
Our daughter was struggling with advanced math which began to undermine her self-confidence. We saw a marked improvement in her grades and general demeanor thanks to the support and caring from the Somerset Learning Center team. Her grades and class participation have improved dramatically and her interest in school has been revived. Many thanks to Mrs. Marshak and everyone at Somerset Learning Center for providing our daughter a stronger educational foundation by developing better study habits and encouraging her thought process. With the support of the Somerset Learning Center team, Elizabeth continues to blossom academically and personally. Elizabeth’s father, grade 10, Somerville NJ

Booker Helps Launch "Homework Help NJ"
State Library partnership with PSE&G means free after school homework help for students in 7 New Jersey communities The New Jersey State Library, in partnership with PSE&G, and with help from Newark Mayor Cory Booker, today launched a major initiative to offer free homework help to the students, residents and users of seven major public libraries around the state. Thanks to a new program called Homework Help NJ, students in grades 4 to 12 can get free help with their math, science, social studies and English assignments via the Internet. This online tutoring program delivered by Tutor.com allows students with library cards to chat online with tutors that can help them tackle their homework problems. Spanish-speaking tutors are available for help with math and science assignments. Homework Help NJ is designed to provide the highest quality of one-on-one instruction. It is being piloted in Camden, Elizabeth, Jersey City, Newark, New Brunswick, Paterson and Willingboro - and thanks to a $265,000 grant from PSE&G it will also be made available to all students enrolled in NJ After 3 afterschool programs. NJ After 3 is a statewide network of nonprofit run, after-school programs, currently serving over 15,000 children in more than 100 schools throughout New Jersey. This is a program that provides real value to the community, said Mayor Booker. By helping kids do better in school, we boost their confidence and ensure that they stay engaged in academics, instead of the activity on the streets. This is the kind of programming we need more of, and the kind of public-private partnerships that I encourage. With Homework Help NJ, theres no scheduling, no appointments and no traveling. Tutors are available online and on demand, 7 days a week from 3 to 8 pm. Whether students need just a few minutes of help or a significant amount of time to better understand a complex concept, certified Tutor.com tutors work with students to help them build their confidence and do well in school. Kids deserve equal opportunity to succeed, and this program helps to provide that, said Ralph LaRossa, President & COO of PSE&G. We see tremendous potential in this program and are providing substantial funding to bring it into communities that we serve. While thats a good start, more support is needed. My hope is that our corporate and foundation colleagues will step up and join the effort in Year Two, so that even more students can get the help they need. In addition to supporting students, Homework Help NJ is a valuable resource for parents, grandparents and caretakers who do not have the time or subject knowledge to help students with their homework on a regular basis. The New Jersey State Library, through the NJ Library Network, has long been committed to the education of young people and adults through a variety of programs we have funded and encouraged local public libraries to offer, noted State Librarian Norma Blake. The extra assistance available to students in these cities from live Homework Help tutors has the potential to instill a sense of success and accomplishment that will carry forward into the school day. With PSE&Gs generous support, we hope to build Homework Help NJ into a program that will expand and extend beyond its initial funding, Blake said. Students who live in one of the seven designated towns can connect to a Homework Help NJ tutor through their local libraries, or from their home PC or Mac, with their library card number. The program Web site is www.homeworkhelpnj.org . In addition, students enrolled in NJ After 3 can access Homework Help NJ at local program sites. NJ After 3 nonprofit partner sites include Boys & Girls Clubs, faith-based groups, museums, universities, community development corporations, YW/YMCAs, and others. Tutor.com has been delivering its Live Homework Help® service to students in the U.S. through libraries since 2001. More than 2.5 million homework help sessions have been delivered to date--with an average of 4,000 sessions each evening this fall. Tutor.com has made a long-term commitment to working with state libraries and businesses to create successful public/private partnerships that benefit kids, explained George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com . We are excited to work with both the New Jersey State Library and PSE&G to ensure that students who need homework assistance in New Jersey have access to instant help to reach their academic goals. About New Jersey State Library The New Jersey State Library has three bureaus: the Library Development Bureau (LDB), the NJ Library for the Blind and Handicapped (NJLBH) and the State Library Information Center (SLIC). It leads in the provision, promotion and support of quality library and information services to all people of New Jersey. The State Library, which is affiliated with Thomas Edison State College, coordinates, promotes and funds the New Jersey Library Network, of which we are a proud member.

Sat / act prep online guides and tips, the 5 best homework help websites (free and paid).
Other High School , General Education
Listen: we know homework isn’t fun, but it is a good way to reinforce the ideas and concepts you’ve learned in class. But what if you’re really struggling with your homework assignments?
If you’ve looked online for a little extra help with your take-home assignments, you’ve probably stumbled across websites claiming to provide the homework help and answers students need to succeed . But can homework help sites really make a difference? And if so, which are the best homework help websites you can use?
Below, we answer these questions and more about homework help websites–free and paid. We’ll go over:
- The basics of homework help websites
- The cost of homework help websites
- The five best homework websites out there
- The pros and cons of using these websites for homework help
- The line between “learning” and “cheating” when using online homework help
- Tips for getting the most out of a homework help website
So let’s get started!
The Basics About Homework Help Websites–Free and Paid
Homework help websites are designed to help you complete your homework assignments, plain and simple.
What Makes a Homework Help Site Worth Using
Most of the best sites allow users to ask questions and then provide an answer (or multiple possible answers) and explanation in seconds. In some instances, you can even send a photo of a particular assignment or problem instead of typing the whole thing out!
Homework help sites also offer more than just help answering homework questions. Common services provided are Q&A with experts, educational videos, lectures, practice tests and quizzes, learning modules, math solving tools, and proofreading help. Homework help sites can also provide textbook solutions (i.e. answers to problems in tons of different textbooks your school might be using), one-on-one tutoring, and peer-to-peer platforms that allow you to discuss subjects you’re learning about with your fellow students.
And best of all, nearly all of them offer their services 24/7, including tutoring!
What You Should Should Look Out For
When it comes to homework help, there are lots–and we mean lots –of scam sites out there willing to prey on desperate students. Before you sign up for any service, make sure you read reviews to ensure you’re working with a legitimate company.
A word to the wise: the more a company advertises help that veers into the territory of cheating, the more likely it is to be a scam. The best homework help websites are going to help you learn the concepts you’ll need to successfully complete your homework on your own. (We’ll go over the difference between “homework help” and “cheating” a little later!)
You don't need a golden piggy bank to use homework help websites. Some provide low or no cost help for students like you!
How Expensive Are the Best Homework Help Websites?
First of all, just because a homework help site costs money doesn’t mean it’s a good service. Likewise, just because a homework help website is free doesn’t mean the help isn’t high quality. To find the best websites, you have to take a close look at the quality and types of information they provide!
When it comes to paid homework help services, the prices vary pretty widely depending on the amount of services you want to subscribe to. Subscriptions can cost anywhere from $2 to $150 dollars per month, with the most expensive services offering several hours of one-on-one tutoring with a subject expert per month.
The 5 Best Homework Help Websites
So, what is the best homework help website you can use? The answer is that it depends on what you need help with.
The best homework help websites are the ones that are reliable and help you learn the material. They don’t just provide answers to homework questions–they actually help you learn the material.
That’s why we’ve broken down our favorite websites into categories based on who they’re best for . For instance, the best website for people struggling with math might not work for someone who needs a little extra help with science, and vice versa.
Keep reading to find the best homework help website for you!
Best Free Homework Help Site: Khan Academy
- Price: Free!
- Best for: Practicing tough material
Not only is Khan Academy free, but it’s full of information and can be personalized to suit your needs. When you set up your account , you choose which courses you need to study, and Khan Academy sets up a personal dashboard of instructional videos, practice exercises, and quizzes –with both correct and incorrect answer explanations–so you can learn at your own pace.
As an added bonus, it covers more course topics than many other homework help sites, including several AP classes.
Runner Up: Brainly.com offers a free service that allows you to type in questions and get answers and explanations from experts. The downside is that you’re limited to two answers per question and have to watch ads.
Best Paid Homework Help Site: Chegg
- Price: $14.95 to $19.95 per month
- Best for: 24/7 homework assistance
This service has three main parts . The first is Chegg Study, which includes textbook solutions, Q&A with subject experts, flashcards, video explanations, a math solver, and writing help. The resources are thorough, and reviewers state that Chegg answers homework questions quickly and accurately no matter when you submit them.
Chegg also offers textbook rentals for students who need access to textbooks outside of their classroom. Finally, Chegg offers Internship and Career Advice for students who are preparing to graduate and may need a little extra help with the transition out of high school.
Another great feature Chegg provides is a selection of free articles geared towards helping with general life skills, like coping with stress and saving money. Chegg’s learning modules are comprehensive, and they feature solutions to the problems in tons of different textbooks in a wide variety of subjects.
Runner Up: Bartleby offers basically the same services as Chegg for $14.99 per month. The reason it didn’t rank as the best is based on customer reviews that say user questions aren’t answered quite as quickly on this site as on Chegg. Otherwise, this is also a solid choice!
Best Site for Math Homework Help: Photomath
- Price: Free (or $59.99 per year for premium services)
- Best for: Explaining solutions to math problems
This site allows you to t ake a picture of a math problem, and instantly pulls up a step-by-step solution, as well as a detailed explanation of the concept. Photomath also includes animated videos that break down mathematical concepts to help you better understand and remember them.
The basic service is free, but for an additional fee you can get extra study tools and learn additional strategies for solving common math problems.
Runner Up: KhanAcademy offers in-depth tutorials that cover complex math topics for free, but you won’t get the same tailored help (and answers!) that Photomath offers.
Best Site for English Homework Help: Princeton Review Academic Tutoring
- Price: $40 to $153 per month, depending on how many hours of tutoring you want
- Best for: Comprehensive and personalized reading and writing help
While sites like Grammarly and Sparknotes help you by either proofreading what you write via an algorithm or providing book summaries, Princeton Review’s tutors provide in-depth help with vocabulary, literature, essay writing and development, proofreading, and reading comprehension. And unlike other services, you’ll have the chance to work with a real person to get help.
The best part is that you can get on-demand English (and ESL) tutoring from experts 24/7. That means you can get help whenever you need it, even if you’re pulling an all-nighter!
This is by far the most expensive homework site on this list, so you’ll need to really think about what you need out of a homework help website before you commit. One added benefit is that the subscription covers over 80 other subjects, including AP classes, which can make it a good value if you need lots of help!
Best Site for STEM Homework Help: Studypool
- Best for: Science homework help
- Price: Varies; you’ll pay for each question you submit
When it comes to science homework help, there aren’t a ton of great resources out there. The best of the bunch is Studypool, and while it has great reviews, there are some downsides as well.
Let’s start with the good stuff. Studypool offers an interesting twist on the homework help formula. After you create a free account, you can submit your homework help questions, and tutors will submit bids to answer your questions. You’ll be able to select the tutor–and price point–that works for you, then you’ll pay to have your homework question answered. You can also pay a small fee to access notes, lectures, and other documents that top tutors have uploaded.
The downside to Studypool is that the pricing is not transparent . There’s no way to plan for how much your homework help will cost, especially if you have lots of questions! Additionally, it’s not clear how tutors are selected, so you’ll need to be cautious when you choose who you’d like to answer your homework questions.
What Are the Pros and Cons of Using Homework Help Sites?
Homework help websites can be a great resource if you’re struggling in a subject, or even if you just want to make sure that you’re really learning and understanding topics and ideas that you’re interested in. But, there are some possible drawbacks if you don’t use these sites responsibly.
We’ll go over the good–and the not-so-good–aspects of getting online homework help below.
3 Pros of Using Homework Help Websites
First, let’s take a look at the benefits.
#1: Better Grades Beyond Homework
This is a big one! Getting outside help with your studies can improve your understanding of concepts that you’re learning, which translates into better grades when you take tests or write essays.
Remember: homework is designed to help reinforce the concepts you learned in class. If you just get easy answers without learning the material behind the problems, you may not have the tools you need to be successful on your class exams…or even standardized tests you’ll need to take for college.
One of the main reasons that online homework help is appealing is because it’s flexible and convenient. You don’t have to go to a specific tutoring center while they’re open or stay after school to speak with your teacher. Instead, you can access helpful resources wherever you can access the internet, whenever you need them.
This is especially true if you tend to study at off hours because of your extracurriculars, work schedule, or family obligations. Sites that offer 24/7 tutoring can give you the extra help you need if you can’t access the free resources that are available at your school.
Not everyone learns the same way. Maybe you’re more of a visual learner, but your teacher mostly does lectures. Or maybe you learn best by listening and taking notes, but you’re expected to learn something just from reading the textbook .
One of the best things about online homework help is that it comes in a variety of forms. The best homework help sites offer resources for all types of learners, including videos, practice activities, and even one-on-one discussions with real-life experts.
This variety can also be a good thing if you just don’t really resonate with the way a concept is being explained (looking at you, math textbooks!).
Not so fast. There are cons to homework help websites, too. Get to know them below!
3 Cons of Using Homework Help Websites
Now, let’s take a look at the drawbacks of online homework help.
#1: Unreliable Info
This can be a real problem. In addition to all the really good homework help sites, there are a whole lot of disreputable or unreliable sites out there. The fact of the matter is that some homework help sites don’t necessarily hire people who are experts in the subjects they’re talking about. In those cases, you may not be getting the accurate, up-to-date, and thorough information you need.
Additionally, even the great sites may not be able to answer all of your homework questions. This is especially true if the site uses an algorithm or chatbot to help students…or if you’re enrolled in an advanced or college-level course. In these cases, working with your teacher or school-provided tutors are probably your best option.
#2: No Clarification
This depends on the service you use, of course. But the majority of them provide free or low-cost help through pre-recorded videos. Watching videos or reading info online can definitely help you with your homework… but you can’t ask questions or get immediate feedback if you need it .
#3: Potential For Scamming
Like we mentioned earlier, there are a lot of homework help websites out there, and lots of them are scams. The review comments we read covered everything from outdated or wrong information, to misleading claims about the help provided, to not allowing people to cancel their service after signing up.
No matter which site you choose to use, make sure you research and read reviews before you sign up–especially if it’s a paid service!
When Does “Help” Become “Cheating”?
Admittedly, whether using homework help websites constitutes cheating is a bit of a grey area. For instance, is it “help” when a friend reads your essay for history class and corrects your grammar, or is it “cheating”? The truth is, not everyone agrees on when “help” crosses the line into “cheating .” When in doubt, it can be a good idea to check with your teacher to see what they think about a particular type of help you want to get.
That said, a general rule of thumb to keep in mind is to make sure that the assignment you turn in for credit is authentically yours . It needs to demonstrate your own thoughts and your own current abilities. Remember: the point of every homework assignment is to 1) help you learn something, and 2) show what you’ve learned.
So if a service answers questions or writes essays for you, there’s a good chance using it constitutes cheating.
Here’s an example that might help clarify the difference for you. Brainstorming essay ideas with others or looking online for inspiration is “help” as long as you write the essay yourself. Having someone read it and give you feedback about what you need to change is also help, provided you’re the one that makes the changes later.
But copying all or part of an essay you find online or having someone write (or rewrite) the whole thing for you would be “cheating.” The same is true for other subjects. Ultimately, if you’re not generating your own work or your own answers, it’s probably cheating.
5 Tips for Finding the Best Homework Help Websites for You
Now that you know some of our favorite homework help websites, free and paid, you can start doing some additional research on your own to decide which services might work best for you! Here are some top tips for choosing a homework help website.
Tip 1: Decide How You Learn Best
Before you decide which site or sites you’re going to use for homework help, y ou should figure out what kind of learning style works for you the most. Are you a visual learner? Then choose a site that uses lots of videos to help explain concepts. If you know you learn best by actually doing tasks, choose a site that provides lots of practice exercises.
Tip 2: Determine Which Subjects You Need Help With
Just because a homework help site is good overall doesn’t mean that it’s equally good for every subject. If you only need help in math, choose a site that specializes in that area. But if history is where you’re struggling, a site that specializes in math won’t be much help. So make sure to choose a site that you know provides high-quality help in the areas you need it most.
Tip 3: Decide How Much One-On-One Help You Need
This is really about cost-effectiveness. If you learn well on your own by reading and watching videos, a free site like Khan Academy is a good choice. But if you need actual tutoring, or to be able to ask questions and get personalized answers from experts, a paid site that provides that kind of service may be a better option.
Tip 4: Set a Budget
If you decide you want to go with a paid homework help website, set a budget first . The prices for sites vary wildly, and the cost to use them can add up quick.
Tip 5: Read the Reviews
Finally, it’s always a good idea to read actual reviews written by the people using these homework sites. You’ll learn the good, the bad, and the ugly of what the users’ experiences have been. This is especially true if you intend to subscribe to a paid service. You’ll want to make sure that users think it’s worth the price overall!
If you want to get good grades on your homework, it’s a good idea to learn how to tackle it strategically. Our expert tips will help you get the most out of each assignment…and boost your grades in the process.
Doing well on homework assignments is just one part of getting good grades. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about getting great grades in high school in this article.
Of course, test grades can make or break your GPA, too. Here are 17 expert tips that’ll help you get the most out of your study prep before you take an exam.

Second-grader’s impossible math homework question leaves parents stumped: ‘help this mama out’.
Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
I’ll be the first to admit that math isn’t my strongest subject.
I’d even go as far as saying I’m pretty much innumerate (illiterate but for numbers – not a real word but go with it.)
With that being said, as a full-grown adult, I thought I would be able to figure out the ‘impossible’ year two maths question that’s doing the rounds on the internet right now.
But I was wrong. So, so wrong.
It turns out, I’m not in the minority here. Hundreds of fellow adults were also scratching their heads trying to solve the task, which has been deemed ‘unsolvable’ by many.
“Please help this mama out!”
It all started when a mom shared her child’s homework question to the r/askmath Reddit.
The question starts off by referencing a previous equation that read: “200 + 60 + 9 = 269.”
Seems simple, right?
But here’s where it gets tricky.

The next question encourages students to “stretch your thinking” by writing another addition equation.
It instructed: “The equation must have a 1-, a 2- and a 3-digit addend and use all of these digits.”
The digits in question included; 6, 6, 2, 2, 8, 8, 0, 0 and 0.
The mom shared a photo of the question next to some working out that’s been scribbled out. She captioned the post: “Second-grade math question that we can’t figure out. The teacher asked for an answer as well that included the numbers. I am so stuck!! This is probably so easy, but after an hour I’m at my wits’ end! Second grade!!!”
She added: “Please help this mama out.”
“This is year two homework?!”
People then rushed to the comments to give the equation a crack and share their thoughts on the question as a whole.
“Fasten your seatbelts… we’re going from ‘Are you smarter than a fifth grader?’ to ‘Are you smarter than a second grader?'” one user quipped.
A second critiqued the question, saying: “Okay but what the heck is this supposed to teach the kids? Guess and check?”
“Yeah, that is not something I would expect very many second graders to get. But then again, that is the ‘Stretch your thinking’ question for this worksheet,” mentioned a third user.
A fourth then made the point, “The unnecessary hyphens after the one and two kinda makes the question confusing, especially for a child.”
“What the hell are addends?” someone else asked, echoing everyone’s thoughts.
“I’m assuming your kid was taught what addends were before this homework was given? So they should have been able to at least explain that part considering that, from the comments, most people don’t have a clue what those are,” someone replied.
So, you’re probably dying to know the answer by now. And, thankfully, a smart cookie in the comments was able to help out.
Apparently, it was as simple as just recreating a similar formula to the previous answer.
“800 + 60 + 2 = 862,” wrote the user.
The OP praised them, saying, “Why did you make it look so easy?! We were about to start WWIII over here and you just whipped it out like the obvious answer that it is. Thank you for saving my tired brain and also my child’s teacher from a very worded email. You win hero of the day!”

Is AT&T down? Reports of nationwide outages may also be impacting Verizon and T-Mobile
Couldn’t make a phone call this morning?
Customers with cellular service through AT&T may be impacted by massive nationwide outages, which could also be impacting Verizon and T-Mobile users, according to Downdetector, a real-time outage monitoring website.
T-Mobile claimed there were no outages this morning, according to a statement.
Customers are seeing SOS only where service bars usually appear on their devices. Here's what that means.
AT&T wireless service restored Thursday afternoon
AT&T said they have "restored wireless service to all our affected customers," according to a 2:10 p.m. CT network update on their website . "We sincerely apologize to them. Keeping our customers connected remains our top priority, and we are taking steps to ensure our customers do not experience this again in the future."
What time did the AT&T outage happen?
According to Downdetector , more than 30,000 outages were reported at 3:29 a.m. ET this morning. By 6:59 a.m. ET, there were up to 71,000 outages.
Why is my phone on SOS only?
When a user's cell phone isn’t connected to a cellular network, they will typically alert the user by giving an indication in the phone's status bar. Those notifications usually say “No Service” or “Searching,” but your phone may also say “SOS” or “SOS only.” When your phone goes into SOS mode, it can still make emergency calls.
AT&T outage map
AT&T allows users to sign up for text alert updates about outages, or you can check on outages with your mobile phone or internet here .
How to check for Verizon outages
Verizon requires customers to sign into their accounts to check outages , but you can also find troubleshooting info and check on the status of repair requests.
T-Mobile says they had no outages
Through a statement via email, T-Mobile said, "We did not experience an outage. Our network is operating normally. Down Detector is likely reflecting challenges our customers were having attempting to connect to users on other networks."

Need free help filing your tax returns? Here are some resources
The 2024 tax-filing season kicked off on Jan. 29, and along with it, lots of free resources became available for state residents to help them complete their forms.
The IRS has started accepting and processing 2023 tax returns from the more than 128.7 million individuals expected to file by the April 15 deadline.
Tax Day, first introduced in 1913, is when individual income tax returns are due to be submitted to the federal government. Since 1955, Tax Day has typically fallen on or just after April 15.
Free assistance services from the IRS
The IRS offers free tax return preparations for qualifying taxpayers. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA and Tax Counseling for the Elderly, or TCE, are the IRS programs that offer help to those in need. The TCE assists seniors who have questions about pensions and other retirement-related issues.
Those who earn $64,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English-speaking taxpayers can ask for help from VITA when filing tax returns.
New Jersey Senior Freeze Program 2024: What you need to know
VITA and TCE operate under the IRS, and are staffed by IRS-certified volunteers and managed under IRS partners. These services are free.
The services offered by VITA and TCE will help prepare tax returns for wages and salaries (W-2 forms), Interest Income (Form 1099-INT), State Tax Refunds (Form 1099-G), Unemployment Benefits (Form 1099-G) and offer assistance with many other documents .
The two volunteer groups do not help prepare tax returns on Complicated Schedule D (capital gains and losses), Schedule C with loss, depreciation or business use of home, Form 8814 (child taxed at parent’s tax rate) and a few other forms.
Those who plan to ask for help from the IRS need to bring proof of identification (driver’s license, state photo ID or other government-issued identification that includes a photo) and Social Security cards for themselves, their spouse and dependents if applicable. They need to bring an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (an assignment letter may be substituted for those who do not have a Social Security number), Wage and earning statements (Form W-2, W-2G, 1099-R,1099-Misc) from all employers, and other items if necessary.
Other tax return services in NJ
United Way of Northern New Jersey is a nonprofit organization that offers free help with tax returns as well. It does so to support racial and financial equity by "assessing the needs and rallying the community to address the barriers that are keeping struggling families from achieving financial and personal success."
More: You can track the status of your income tax refund online. Here's how
United Way takes part in the VITA grant program. It has volunteers who are trained in using IRS materials to provide free tax preparation for low and moderate-income households. United Way has set up locations at schools, churches, libraries and other community areas to assist with these tasks. United Way is supported by the IRS and works within the IRS requirements.
Families or individuals eligible for the United Way assistance can get online tax help, by appointment or through free self-preparation software, as long as they earn under $73,000. Businesses and landlords are not eligible. Assistance in Spanish is available through the United Way online portal.
United Way of Northern New Jersey has partners in Morris, Somerset, suburban Essex, Sussex and Warren counties.
The IRS recommends individuals get organized before filing returns. It recommends filers understand the process, which may be overwhelming. The agency suggests gathering tax records including Social Security numbers, individual taxpayer identification numbers, adoption identification numbers and an Identity Protection (IP PIN) before moving forward with filling out forms.
The agency recommends those who are filing report all their taxable income and only file once they receive all income-related documents. The IRS said filing taxes electronically with direct deposit is the easiest and fastest way to receive a refund.
N.J. psychiatric hospitals are like prisons that put patients in danger every day, lawsuit says
- Updated: Feb. 22, 2024, 4:00 a.m. |
- Published: Feb. 21, 2024, 8:30 a.m.
- Susan K. Livio | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
An advocacy group for people with disabilities sued the Murphy Administration Tuesday for running the state’s public psychiatric hospitals like prisons, where patients have been sexually and physically assaulted, deprived of basic necessities like water and kept months — and even years — beyond their discharge date.
Disability Rights New Jersey, a federally funded advocacy organization, described grim conditions for many of he 1,150 patients at the Ancora Psychiatric Hospital in Winslow, Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in Parsippany, Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and Ann Klein Forensic Center in Trenton and Ewing.
“The reality on the ground is more akin to psychiatric incarceration,” the 99-page federal lawsuit said.
