Free tax prep clinic at St. Stephen's

St. Stephen's Free Tax Prep is still going on for the season. Get free tax preparation and e-filing by IRS certified volunteers.

The Free Tax Prep Clinic at St. Stephen’s prepares and e-files tax returns for individuals earning $55,000 and less free of charge, ensuring accurate returns, including all credits and deductions to which taxpayers are entitled, and saving them tax preparation fees. Entering their ninth tax season, they are a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site, a program of the IRS. The IRS created VITA more than 50 years ago to help taxpayers claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).  

Nearly a quarter of taxpayers who are eligible for the EITC do not claim it.  Tax preparation services can be expensive, an average of nearly $300 last filing season in Miami-Dade County. The industry is also rife with unscrupulous practices, such as charging a percentage of the refund as the tax prep fee, claiming bogus tax credits to which the taxpayer is not entitled to increase refunds, and pushing high-interest, short-term refund anticipation loans. At St. Stephen’s, taxpayers receive excellent, friendly service, and accurate tax returns, all free of charge.

Hours:  Evenings & weekends, by appointment
Languages spoken:  English & Spanish

Make an appointment by calling 786-254-1910 or emailing ststephenspc@comcast.net

St. Stephen's is at 2750 McFarlane Road.
