Where to find assistance for preparing, filing taxes

Dozens of sites throughout northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan offer help preparing returns. Some offer walk-up service while others are by appointment only. Appointments could be limited.

Preparers providing free help are trained to do relatively simple returns; people with businesses or rental properties are excluded. The average return takes about 45 minutes and includes state filings.

It is recommended that you call first to see if appointments are still available. The IRS’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and the AARP’s Tax Counseling for the Elderly run the programs.

The sites are:
