No appointment is required.  Sites are operated on a first-come-first-served basis.  There are three Aims locations ready to assist you:

  • Greeley Campus -  Cornerstone Building | Saturdays | February 10 - April 13 | 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
    • The Greeley site is closed on March 9 and 16 for Spring Break.
  • Fort Lupton Campus - Prairie Building  | Fridays | February  9 - March 8 | 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
  • Loveland Campus - Thursdays | February 8 - March 7 | 4:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Participants should bring the following documents to the tax preparation events:

  • All W-2s, 1099s and other income-related documents
  • Mortgage interest, daycare payments, college education expenses, charitable contributions and all other tax-deductible expenses
  • Social Security cards or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) documents for all family members and taxpayer photo ID
  • Bank account number and routing number to direct deposit refunds
  • A copy of last year's tax return, if available

In addition to providing community tax preparation services, it gives Aims students looking for careers in accounting and bookkeeping more training and experience before entering the workforce. Each fall, Aims students who volunteer with the program take a course that covers fundamental law and tax preparation. Students then take an IRS VITA exam that certifies them to prepare tax returns. They are then ready to assist the community with tax preparation in the spring. 

Last year, Aims assisted 1,440 taxpayers and helped them receive more than $3.1 million in federal and state refunds.

Tax Help Colorado is a nonprofit organization funded by Mile High United Way. The program operates more than 35 sites across Colorado. For more information, visit or call 211.
