Miami Dade College Again Offers Free Tax Preparation Feb. 5 – April 15
Start Date: 4/5/2019Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/14/2019End Time: Midnight
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 Miguel B. Fernandez School of Global Business, Trade and Transportation faculty and students, services will be available Feb. 5 – April 14, at various MDC campuses.

Launched 25 years ago, the VITA program initially began at the Wolfson Campus and was extended to other locations, including the North, Kendall, InterAmerican, Homestead, and Hialeah campuses.  VITA Centers are supervised by MDC’s School of Business professors and experienced coordinators.  Students serve as volunteers who prepare free individual income tax returns for other students, their families and the general public.  The returns are reviewed by the professors or experienced coordinators before being electronically filed with the IRS.  Every year the college wide VITA Program has between 80 and 100 volunteers.

Last year, the program completed 2,404 individual tax returns, amounting to more than $2,754,184 in refunds. More than $977,005 in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) was refunded to qualifying individuals. Overall, the program has given back to the residents of Miami-Dade County more than $50 million in refunds since it began a quarter century ago.

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.

Federal income tax returns must be in the mail and postmarked no later than Monday, April 15, 2019.
