About

Volunteers should be on board by mid-November to receive training materials, attend training sessions and complete certification(s) by mid-January. Our primary tax preparation season runs from February 1 to mid-April. More information is available on our website, MakeChangeNoCo.org .

Larimer County Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program needs volunteers to prepare taxes, provide site support, and translation assistance. Training is provided, no experience needed.

Tax Preparers: While many volunteers have experience in accounting or tax law, everyone is welcome. Our comprehensive training program using IRS certification focuses on individual taxes for low-income and elderly filers.

Site Support: It takes more than volunteer tax preparers to keep our sites running. Volunteer to greet and orient clients, to photocopy and assemble tax returns, or to provide administrative and operational support at a tax site.

Translators: Volunteers needed with Spanish language expertise. Assist tax preparers in collecting required information and clarifying questions related to tax return preparation and explanation of the results. Contact 970-599-1765 or vitafortcollins@gmail.com for more information.
