Get your taxes prepared for free through Tax Help Colorado at Aims

Submitted on: 01-20-2009

Aims Community College is taking part in the Tax Help Colorado program, offering free tax return preparation and filing for anyone who makes less than $43,000 annually. The program is funded through a grant from the Piton Foundation, the Denver-based community investment division of Gary-Williams Energy. Students from Aims and the University of Northern Colorado who have earned their Internal Revenue Service certification to provide income tax preparation services will be providing the free service. "The service our volunteers are providing is a huge benefit to the community," said Aims Accounting Instructor Gina Jones. "In addition, Tax Help Colorado gives our students valuable real-world application and insight into tax preparation and accounting professions. We are very excited to begin operating our first free tax site and assisting our neighbors with their tax preparation." The Tax Help Colorado program at Aims will be open on Saturdays and Tuesdays beginning Jan. 31 through Feb. 28. Saturday hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Tuesday hours are from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Interested parties should call the Rocky Mountain SER at (970) 353-9251 to schedule an appointment. Tax Help Colorado began in 2007 and is modeled after a very successful program in New Mexico, which helps nearly 30,000 taxpayers each year through 40 free tax sites across New Mexico.
