About Us

We use taxes to build trust — and brighter financial futures.

Since 1972, we have helped low- and moderate-income residents of southeast Michigan with tax preparation services and education. Through these services, we connect with clients and build a foundation of trust and confidence. This foundation becomes the first step in building better financial futures, encouraging entrepreneurship, and strengthening Michigan’s workforce.

Taxes are only the beginning.

We believe everyone should have access to trustworthy tax preparation services and advice. For our clients, who are underserved and often struggling to make ends meet, even one small mistake on their tax return could deprive them of refunds they need and deserve. By guiding them throughout the tax process, we empower our clients to not only take charge of their taxes, but also to take control of all their finances.
