Community Action Agency Updates


Residents of Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale counties with household income up to $64,000 in 2023 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 2023 is now open 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 2023 tax season the VITA program at CAA helped secure more than $3.1M in federal and state refunds, $1.1M in Property Tax Credits, and $184K in Home Heating Credits for more than 4,000 households in Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale counties.
