The Pueblo VITA Program provides free tax preparation and filing for individuals and families with a household income of $55,000 or less. VITA is a program of the IRS, developed more than 40 years ago as a means for income taxpayers to have their tax forms prepared free of charge. The goal of the program is to move people towards greater economic self-sufficiency and away from safety net services that are used during crisis situations. In addition to providing free tax prep, VITA works to ensure everyone in the community receives all of the tax credits and deductions that they are eligible for.
The Pueblo VITA Program processed 1,723 income tax forms (911- federal and 812 state) at various sites throughout the community and via drop-off format in 2021. Over $1,650,797 was brought back into the Pueblo community through refunds and an estimated $258,450 was realized in preparation savings to the taxpayers. The 2022 tax season will be the 16th year of service to the community at sites located throughout Pueblo County. Pueblo VITA Program emphasizes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Care Tax Credit, the Tax Credit for the Elderly (TCE) as well as tuition and other key credits.
