What is Tax Help Colorado?
A partnership between The Piton Foundation and the Colorado Community College System,
Tax Help Colorado offers free tax preparation assistance to individuals
who earn less than about $52,000 a year, helping to ease the burden of
commercial tax preparation costs on low-wage earners. The program was
launched in 2007 to help link even more Colorado families to valuable
tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
Are the preparers certified?
The volunteer tax preparers are MCC students who completed courses and have become IRS certified tax preparers.
