Residents of Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale counties with household income up to $60,000 in 2022 can get their tax returns prepared FREE through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program at Community Action Agency.

Automated appointment scheduling for Tax Year 2022 begins January 23, 2023 and there is an option to leave a message for callback, if necessary. “Appointment times fill up quickly,” says CAA Program Operations Manager Tami Farnum, “but we continue to add additional appointment times throughout the tax season based on volunteer availability.”

During the 2022 tax season the VITA program at CAA helped secure more than $4.23M in federal and state refunds and $183K in Home Heating Credits for 2,787 residents in Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale counties.
