Through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, Pikes Peak United Way, in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), works to move people toward greater economic sufficiency by providing FREE income tax preparation assistance to individuals and families with a household income of $54,000 a year or less.
In addition, it also helps taxpayers obtain eligible tax credits and valuable deductions such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Education Tax Credits and Child Care tax deductions.
Filed electronically, most refunds are returned in just 10-14 days, eliminating the need to pay high interest rates associated with many instant refund programs.
