RSVP offers free tax filing help
If you are a senior, have a disability or your household income is less than $49,000 per year, RSVP volunteers can prepare and electronically file your federal and state income taxes for free.
RSVP volunteers are certified by the IRS and can prepare returns that include: Form 1040; Schedules A, B, EIC (Earned Income Credit) and R; Child and Dependent Care Credits; and Education Credits.
If you are you a small business owner, volunteers can file Schedule C – EZ (but not Schedule C Profit or Loss from Business). Volunteers cannot file Schedule E for rental properties and cannot file complicated and advanced Schedule D for capital gains and losses.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through April 15. We are an AARP tax-aide site and serve clients from Aspen to Parachute, Eagle and Craig. Call 970-384-8740 to schedule an appointment.
High Country RSVP is a national Senior Corps Program and a sponsored program of Colorado Mountain College.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

Two former mayors contend the mill levy could be adjusted in any given year as long as it didn’t exceed the mill levy in 1994. It’s a $2 million question.
