Accounting Aid Society provides one of the nation's largest free income tax assistance programs for low and moderate income families, seniors and others in need. We assist people with local, state and federal tax filings, as well as Property Tax Refunds, Earned Income Credits, Home Heating Credits and Child Credits. We also provide information on tax rights and responsibilities, including help for those who speak English as a second language, and offer aid in resolving tax disputes with the IRS.

Each year we recruit more than 600 volunteers to help us fulfill our mission. During the 2014 tax season more than $21 million was returned to more than 20,000 low and moderate income households.

Our tax volunteers are specially trained using materials and instruction provided in partnership with he Internal Revenue Service, the State of Michigan, and the City of Detroit. Once trained, our volunteers give of their time at more than 20 locations in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Livingston counties during the January - April tax season, serving clients at libraries, community centers, social service agencies and other locations that provide space for the program.
