Tax Prep Options in Midst of COVID-19 Closures

The message below comes from Get Ahead Colorado, a program from The Piton Foundation that provides free tax preparation:
As you may have expected, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is forcing the closure of many free tax sites around the state. In addition, a decision has been made to close The Piton Foundation offices through April 3 and move all employees to a remote working situation.Our partner program Tax Help Colorado and other VITA programs recognize the continued need for free, accessible tax services for low to moderate income families. This resource is now more important than ever—therefore we want to make you aware of other free tax preparation options for families.
  • Remote Drop Off – A new program by Code for America in partnership with VITA sites is available to households making $60,000 or less
  • IRS Free File – Includes a number of free online filing options for both federal and state returns available for households making $69,000 or less
  • – Through United Way’s partnership with H&R Block, every household with a simple return can file their federal and state taxes for free (this option does not include filers who are contract workers, i.e. Uber or Lyft drivers)

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates about when tax sites may resume operations, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.

Stay healthy and safe during these uncertain times!
