FAQS
Q:
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).
Q:
Are the preparers certified?
The volunteer tax preparers are MCC students who completed courses and have become IRS certified tax preparers.
