MIAMI ( June 19, 2020 )

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD) continues to offer free tax preparation assistance through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. With the July 15, 2020 tax filing deadline approaching, residents can receive assistance over the telephone and online.

“For more than 35 years, CAHSD employees, who are IRS-certified tax preparers, have been providing free basic tax preparation services to qualified Miami-Dade County residents,” said Lucia Davis-Raiford, CAHSD Director. This service is available to individuals/households earning $56,000 or less annually, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking residents. 

Residents in need of assistance should gather the documents listed below and contact one of the CAHSD Community Resource Centers to verify eligibility and schedule an appointment.  All tax returns are electronically filed.
