Event Description:

Miami Dade College (MDC) will once again provide free tax preparation services to low-income individuals, the elderly and non-English speaking residents throughout Miami-Dade County as part of the Internal Revenue’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Administered and staffed by MDC School of Business faculty and students, services will begin Monday, Feb. 6, at various MDC campuses through April. Federal income tax returns must be in the mail and postmarked no later April 18, 2017.  

MDC launched the MDC/IRS VITA program 23 years ago and collaborates with Single Stop, a student services support program that connects MDC students and their families to the resources they need to attain a higher education. Last year, the MDC/IRS VITA program completed 2,606 individual tax returns college-wide, amounting to more than $2,925,570 in refunds. More than $1,034,287 in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) was refunded to qualifying individuals.

“MDC business students are trained beforehand and must pass an IRS exam of basic rules, regulations, and tax preparation skills before they assist taxpayers. Divided into three groups, their functions are administrative, tax return preparation, and quality review,” said Dr. Ana M. Cruz, college wide director of the program.

Requirements to have taxes prepared through the VITA program include social security card and social security cards of any dependents to be claimed; Photo ID; W-2 earnings statement; 1099 MISC (for self-employed only); 1099 INT (interest income); and any documents pertaining to expenses to be claimed.
