Tax Help Colorado

A partnership between The Piton Foundation and the Colorado Community College System, Tax Help Colorado offers free tax preparation assistance to families who earn less than about $54,000 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 EITC and Child Tax Credit.

The program utilizes community college and high school students who take an accredited course on income tax preparation then operate free tax sites on their campuses for college credit. Learn more about the Tax Help Colorado program on college and high school campuses.


Free tax sites, known as Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Sites, are located across the state. Use the look up tool to search for a free tax site in your community using your zip code or address.
