Partnership with Tax Help Colorado fills a vital need for families with incomes under $55,000

This tax season, Community College of Denver (CCD) is partnering with Denver-based Piton Foundation to help hard-working families become more financially secure by providing free tax preparation services through the Tax Help Colorado program. Beginning January 26th IRS-certified students will prepare and file tax returns free of charge for individuals with household incomes of less than about $55,000 a year.

This free service will be offered at CCD from January 26 through March 9 on Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at CCD’s Cherry Creek Building (1111 West Colfax Ave.), Room 202.

On average, tax preparation in Colorado can cost $200—tax-filing services at Tax Help Colorado sites are completely free-of-charge. In addition to getting their taxes done for free, taxpayers may be eligible for valuable, refundable tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit. Tax preparers are trained to ensure the families they serve get the best refund possible. The program also helps students develop customer service skills, achieve practical, hands-on experience, serve their community and earn college credits.

It’s rare to have the opportunity to be part of a program with such a direct positive impact on our community,” said Brian Gilsdorf, assistant professor of accounting for CCD. “We’re proud to be saving people money on tax preparation services, and helping them get the best refund possible so they can make ends meet.”

In 2018, CCD volunteers prepared taxes for nearly 488 taxpayers who received more than $1 million in refunds; and saved taxpayers $100,000 in tax preparation fees.
