A taxing job done well

High Country RSVP tax volunteers did an amazing job this year filing federal and state income taxes for 452 seniors, persons with disabilities and low to moderate income from Aspen to Parachute, and in Eagle and Craig.

RSVP tax volunteers served 946 hours meeting with clients in Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Parachute/Battlement Mesa, Craig, Eagle and Carbondale. And they had amazing results. Through RSVP’s tax program, RSVP clients received a total of $324,561 in federal and state refunds with an average refund of $729.35. That’s great news for our clients and our community.

If you see one of our tax counselors, please make sure and thank them. They worked tirelessly to help the people of Garfield County. Thank you RSVP volunteers Carl Vogt, Kathy Vogt, Bob Spuhler, Emil Cima, Ron Kokish, Gail Zalutsky, and Penelope Olson.
