Community Action and Human Services Department provides free tax preparation to eligible Miami-Dade County Residents

MIAMI ( February 09, 2021 )

Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD) is offering free tax preparation through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) now through April 15, 2021. 

“For more than 36 years, CAHSD employees, who are also IRS-certified tax preparers, have provided free basic tax preparation services to Miami-Dade County residents,” said Annika S. Holder, CAHSD Interim Director. This service is available to individuals/households earning $57,000 or less annually, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking residents. 

“This free service provides important support to help Miami-Dade families navigate tax preparation, especially given the additional financial stresses caused by the pandemic,” said Daniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade County Mayor. “I am so proud that Miami-Dade County employees are lending their services and a helping hand to some of those who need it most.”
