If you pay rent, heating bills, or property taxes and are not working but have other income (example: Social Security, SSI, Unemployment, Veterans Pension),you may still be eligible for some tax credits such as a Heat Credit and a Property Tax Credit - even for renters.

sponsored by Accounting Aid Society





 Accounting Aid Society will have 23 free tax preparation locations in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Livingston counties for the main tax season, beginning on January 20, 2018 and operating through April 14th (some through April 17th).


Find a site: http://accountingaidsociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/All-Sites-1-30-18-.pdf

(or see  flyer attached).


Most locations offer walk-in first come, first served service. Some are by appointment-only as noted.


Please note that Midtown resident, Leslie Malcolmson, is a volunteer at the Duffield Library. If you have questions - call her on 313-831-7931.


Choosing Accounting Aid Society over paid tax preparers who can miss potential deductions and credits, and charge for “rapid refund loans,” will save you $200 to $300 in fees. And because we e-file and offer direct deposit, there is no faster way to get your refund.


Our Homebound Tax Program can help if you are physically unable to go to a tax site. Call us for details.
