PPCC helps local families file taxes for free

Colorado Springs–January 18, 2020– For the eighth year in a row, Pikes Peak Community College is partnering with Denver-based Piton Foundation to offer hard-working families free tax preparation through the Tax Help Colorado program. 

Beginning Saturday, February 1, IRS-certified accounting students and volunteers will prepare and file tax returns free of charge to households with incomes of less than $56,000 a year. Tax preparers receive comprehensive training to ensure the families they serve get the best refund possible. 


Free tax prep helps ease the burden of commercial tax preparation costs on low-wage earners and helps connect families with valuable tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit, which is worth up to $6,500 for the 2019 tax year. On average, tax preparation in Colorado cost $200. 

This free service will be offered at PPCC’s Centennial Campus, 5675 S. Academy Blvd., Aspen Building Rotunda, every Saturday from February 1- March 21, 8 am – 4 pm. Appointments only. Call 719-502-4TAX (4829) or email


Clients should bring their social security cards or ITINs, photo ID and tax documents. For more information and a complete list of what to bring
