Volunteer certified tax preparers are located on site at the Tri-County Office on Aging in Lansing and also at locations in Delta Township, the Hannah Center in East Lansing, Okemos, and downtown Lansing.

Although the program is geared to help low- to moderate-income seniors, there are no age or income restrictions. The program is available for senior citizens through April 15th. If you are interested in using this service, please contact the Tri-County Office on Aging at 517.887.1440 or visit tcoa.org to schedule an appointment.
