Miami Beach Offers Free Tax Preparation Services

(Miami Beach, FL) Jan 28, 2022 -

Recognized as a best practice site by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for its fast and reliable tax preparation program, the City of Miami Beach will once again offer free income tax preparation services from Feb. 1 through Apr. 15, 2022 for households earning $57,000 or less and persons with disabilities.


“Last year, more than 520 households benefited from the free tax preparation services, resulting in approximately $530,000 in refunds,” Director of Housing & Community Services Alba Tarre said. “We look forward to providing the same high level of service this year.”

Tax preparation services will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays via appointment and will be held in person when possible or via a drop-off method.
