(Lamar, Colorado; January 30, 2017) This tax season, Lamar Community College is partnering with the 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 Tuesday, February 14, IRS-certified LCC students will be available for six days in February to prepare and e-file tax returns free of charge for individuals with household incomes of less than about $54,000 a year.
This free service, which is quick and confidential, will be offered at Lamar Community College from Tuesday, February 14, through Thursday, February 16. The regular tax site will be open from 5:00-8:00pm all three days for individuals and families to come work alongside the tax preparers to complete their tax returns.
Anyone wishing to drop-off their taxes, to be completed and picked up later, may do so from 9:00am-1:00pm each of those days as well. Tax returns that are dropped off can be picked up from 8:00-2:00pm on Friday, February 17; this date is for pick up only and no new returns will be accepted at this time. The drop-off and the regular tax site is set for the Betz Technology Center, Room 103.
A list of all the Tax Help Colorado sites, as well as the locations of other free tax assistance sites in Colorado, is available by dialing 2-1-1 (it’s a free call), visiting http://www.piton.org/tax-help, or finding Tax Help Colorado on Facebook (www.facebook.com/taxhelpcolorado) and Twitter (@TaxHelpCo).
