Miami Immigrants Get Tax Help

El Nuevo Herald, Juan Carlos Chavez Posted: Feb 12, 2010

MIAMI-- Representatives of independent community organizations in the state of Florida are urging immigrants to file income taxes correctly and on time, El Nuevo Herald reports.

The local group Colombian American Service Association (CASA) is offering free assistance, or assistance at low cost, to lower middle-class immigrants to help them file income taxes. The purpose is to avoid mistakes during the process and guarantee they receive government refunds.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) authorities are urging immigrants who file their taxes to pay attention to details, like including Social Security numbers, providing appropriate signatures, as well as properly calculating expenses and refunds.

Organizations offering assistance include Miami Dade College, which offers technical support through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. The City of Miami arranged several places and a telephone line to provide information to contributors. The city's assistance campaign has resulted in the refund of $72 million in Earned Income Tax Credit and around $176 million in total refunds.
