The Accounting Aid Society’s newest year-round tax center is now open for business in Oakland County. Tax Supervisor Brian Foster says the center will provide local residents with free income tax preparation assistance. They will also provide help filling out applications for home weatherization, utility and food assistance.
“We’re really trying to provide a one-stop shop for all the financial needs of low and middle-income households in Oakland County to get them up on their feet and productive members of society,” Foster told WWJ Newsradio 950.
Foster added that the center expects to serve 6,000 low-to-middle income households in its first two years of operation and return an estimated $7 million to the local economy. They expect that will boost Oakland County’s economy by $10 million over the next two years.
Walk-ins are accepted. However, appointments are preferred. The Oakland Neighborhood Tax Center is located at 1956 Hilton in Ferndale.
They can be reached by calling toll-free, 1-866-673-0873.
