Tax Help Colorado
A program of The Piton Foundation, Tax Help Colorado offers free tax preparation assistance to families who earn less than about $55,000 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.
In addition to community volunteers, the program utilizes college and high school students who take a course on income tax preparation then operate free tax sites on their campuses for college credit.
