Michigan CPAs Serving the Community
The MICPA is proud to represent a profession whose members generously give of their time and expertise to help in their communities. Every year, dozens of MICPA professional and student members provide tax preparation assistance to low-income families. This program, in conjunction with Accounting Aid Society, returns more than $6 million in tax refunds and credits annually to those who need it most. And, during their busiest time of year, CPAs from across the state, like these members from Grand Rapids, appear on radio and television to help consumers with their tax questions. We are  proud of our CPAs!
