COLORADO SPRINGS — Among other things, the start of a new year means it's time to start thinking about getting your taxes filed.

This can be a stressful time for many, but one Colorado Springs man does his best to bring a smile to his neighbors' faces during tax season.

Jimmy Gomez-Beisch works to bring in business at Liberty Tax on Platte Ave. and he does so by dancing while dressed as a Stormtrooper.

He said he enjoys brightening the day for his neighbors.

"I basically do what I do for the kids in our community, to bring smiles and laughter to our neighborhood," Gomez-Beisch said.

Last year, someone recorded a video of Jimmy dancing in his Stormtrooper costume and posted it online. The video went viral, so he decided to use the costume again this year.
