Tax Preparation Assistance
Free City of Miami Tax Preparation Services
Proper income tax preparation is important! Join the City of Miami and
ACCESS Miami at any of our locations to enjoy FREE tax services for
qualifying City of Miami employees and residents. The City of
Miami is once again joining forces with the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) and its partners to assist residents with their 2015
income tax preparation. Over 20 City-sponsored locations are
offering free tax preparation services and other important
resources such as FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
using the Benefit Bank (TBB) as part of this year's campaign.
Learn about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) at one of our locations. EITC is one of the nation's largest anti-poverty programs, annually lifting 6.6 million people out of poverty; half of these are children. Last year, over 26 million workers received nearly $59 billion in EITC. The average credit was $2,100, but can be as much as $6,200 depending on the worker's income, marital status and whether they have children. More than 60 percent of all tax returns claiming EITC are filed during February.
ACCESS Miami offers its residents programs and services to empower them with access to financial tools and education that are fundamental to economic prosperity. ACCESS Miami uses the Benefit Bank to provide assistance to its residents through the Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) Offices and other community partners providing the opportunity to apply for Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit, among other federal, state and local assistance.
