We provide free federal and state income tax preparation and e-filing for low- and middle-income families, individuals and seniors in Larimer county. We interact with approximately 4,500 clients each year and complete 3,500 federal returns, 3,400 state (Colorado & Other) returns and a number of Colorado Property Tax/Rent/Heat (PTC) forms specifically for low-income seniors.
Our volunteers are trained and certified each year under IRS / SPEC / VITA standards.
We experienced a 10% increase in the number of returns prepared this past season. We believe the increase is related to better, more consistent publicity, a more aggressive public education campaign and referrals through our partner agencies.
We are consistently invited to provide on-site services at public libraries, churches, and senior residences. New clients tell us they heard about us from a friend or co-worker, or saw our publicity in a public place. Many of our clients have returned to us for 20 years or more.
