Free tax preparation by IRS-certified volunteers of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offered in Fort Collins and Loveland. Sites can prepare basic Federal and Colorado State returns including:
Income from wages (reported on a form W-2), social security benefits, pensions and retirement accounts, interest and dividends, self-employment income with simple business expenses, and proceeds from the sale of stocks and bonds where the cost basis is provided.
Credits including the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, credit for dependent care expenses, education credits, and qualified residential energy credits.
The program is free of charge for income-qualified taxpayers (age 59 and younger with gross income up to $69,000) and senior taxpayers (60 and above with routine tax returns).
