GREELEY, CO – January 17, 2020 – Aims Community College is offering free tax preparation and e-filing through the Tax Help Colorado program, funded by the Denver-based Piton Foundation. Anyone who earned less than $56,000 last year can stop by the Greeley, Fort Lupton or Loveland campuses on the dates and times listed below:
“I am so proud of our continuing partnership with the Tax Help Colorado program,” said Aims President and CEO Dr. Leah L. Bornstein. “This program provides real-world training for our students while giving us the opportunity to support our community.”
Aims students who help with the program take a two-credit course that covers basic law and tax preparation in the Fall semester. Students then take an IRS VITA Certification Exam once they’ve completed the course, which certifies them to prepare tax returns for low to middle-income taxpayers.
“Our student volunteers are IRS-certified to review, e-file and complete tax returns for our community members,” said Accounting Instructor Gina Jones. “We love being a part of the Tax Help Colorado program and look forward to another successful year.”
