Mile High Magazine 02/28/2021 Get Ahead Colorado

Guest:  Kelly Wagoner Director Get Ahead Colorado is a program of the Piton Foundation that provides information to families about free tax preparation, valuable tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit and other resources for working families.  Some families are not filling their taxes because the information overwhelms them and they are they make under the amount to file.  By not filing, they are possibly missing credits that could be helping them.  One of those credits if the Earned Income Tax Credit which is a federal, cash-back tax credit worth up to $6,600 and the state of Colorado offers a 10% match of whatever a taxpayer qualifies for on the federal level.  Some in-person tax sites are still open and operating; free online filing is available for those with access to a computer, and a new remote option allows people to get help filing from an IRS-certified preparer the safety and comfort of their home. https://getaheadcolorado.org/
