United Way of Broward County


 

Taxes do not have to be scary or expensive to deal with since United Way of Broward County, in partnership with Hispanic Unity, is giving local families a helping hand by providing free tax preparation services.  If you make less than $64,000 annually you are eligible for free online tax preparation. Visit MyFreeTaxes.com to do your taxes or find a site close to where you and others live, work and play.
 
Residents who earn a household income of less than $54,000 can have their taxes filed for FREE by IRS-certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) workers.
 
 
About the Tax Credits:
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) programs provide federal
tax benefits for low and moderate-income workers. The EITC offsets some or all of those families' federal income taxes and in many cases provides a supplemental source of income
to help offset other taxes, including sales and payroll taxes. In order to claim the credits, eligible workers must file a tax return.
 
 
*Attendees interested in having their taxes filed at the VITA site must bring the following documents:  W-2 and 1099, Social Security card (yours and your dependents'), photo identification, and should bring a copy of 2016 tax return.
