State & Local Tax Resource Page

The following resources were created by the MEIC for the training of Michigan free tax assistance volunteers. While these resources are free to use and access, we ask that you respect the work of our volunteer members and do not use these training materials for any for-profit use. If you make any changes to these documents (or come up with answers to any of the testing quizzes or supplements), please share them with Brian Rakovitis. If you find value in these resources, we also ask that you consider joining the MEIC. Membership is free and helps support free tax and asset building practitioners and policy in Michigan.

Federal VITA/TCE Training Resources is a page created by Mary Meador from Florida that has links to study guides, the Taxpayer Opportunity Network VITA Train, the Colorado TaxAide Tools page and many more excellent training and resources for volunteers and site coordinators.
