What is Tax Help Colorado?
A partnership between Mile High United Way and the Colorado Community College System, Tax Help Colorado offers free tax preparation assistance to individuals who earn less than about $57,000 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).
