  • For individuals making less than $35,000 a year, and families making less than $53,000 The Accounting Aid Society provides free income tax preparation services. You can learn more at or call (313) 556-1920 for more information.
  • Looking to do your taxes yourself? If you make $31,000 or less you can complete online filing of federal, state and city taxes for free through TurboTax Freedom Edition
