Tax Help Colorado is an IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program that helps thousands of families access quality, free tax assistance each year.

We partner with community colleges, nonprofits, and central service providers to connect low- and moderate-income families and individuals to free high-quality tax preparation.

Regardless of previous experience, volunteers can develop tax preparation skills, get hands-on experience, and better understand the tax system and its role in social justice and economic opportunity in order to help our community.
