Jackson Department on Aging , Carnegie Library and The Arbor Church in Spring Arbor will be doing in person appointments, all other sites will be operating as a drop off site. Please follow the instructions that you receive in your confirmation email or text message about the location you choose.
For Drop off locations, please be prepared to drop off documents with a preparer and return for your completed return at another time. At the end of this process, once approved, we will e-file your tax return.
Although you are dropping off, please allow time to speak with a tax preparer or intake specialist. In addition, you must fill out the required paperwork completely.
All sites will have paperwork available to pick up prior to your appointment so that you will have time to fill it out ahead of time. There will be a container located at each site.
