Tips for taxpayers to make filing easier

To speed refunds and help with their tax filing, the IRS urges people to follow these simple steps:
  • File electronically and use direct deposit for the quickest refunds. 
  • Check IRS.gov for the latest tax information, including the latest on Economic Impact Payments. There is no need to call.
  • For those who may be eligible for stimulus payments, they should carefully review the guidelines for the Recovery Rebate Credit. Most people received Economic Impact Payments automatically, and anyone who received the maximum amount does not need to include any information about their payments when they file. However, those who didn't receive a payment or only received a partial payment may be eligible to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit when they file their 2020 tax return. Tax preparation software, including IRS Free File, will help taxpayers figure the amount.
  • Remember, advance stimulus payments received separately are not taxable, and they do not reduce the taxpayer's refund when they file in 2021.

Key filing season dates

There are several important dates taxpayers should keep in mind for this year's filing season:

  • February 12 - IRS begins 2021 tax season. Individual tax returns begin being accepted and processing begins. 

  • February 22 - Projected date for the IRS.gov Where's My Refund tool being updated for those claiming EITC and ACTC, also referred to as PATH Act returns. 

  • First week of March - Tax refunds begin reaching those claiming EITC and ACTC (PATH Act returns) for those who file electronically with direct deposit and there are no issues with their tax returns. 

  • April 15 - Deadline for filing 2020 tax returns. 

  • October 15 -Deadline to file for those requesting an extension on their 2020 tax returns

Free tax help! - The average cost of paid tax preparation is $273, for many families,
these are dollars that could otherwise go toward monthly bills and emergency savings. By preparing taxes for free, we help our taxpayers get more of the money they earned back. The families we serve use their tax refunds to “build their aspirations for upward mobility.”

Boosting the Miami-Dade County Economy- In the 2020 tax season, our Coalition prepared over 12,000+ tax returns, resulting in over $13 million back to the Miami-Dade community.

Awareness of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) - The EITC is our nation’s most
effective anti-poverty tool. It is a refundable tax credit available to low- and moderate-income
households with members who work. In 2020, 27 million tax filers claimed the EITC, receiving
an average benefit of $2,445. For tax year 2020, a married couple with two children and an
income of $40,000 qualified for an EITC of $2,226, meaning their EITC benefit was the
equivalent of 6 percent of their annual income. Refundable tax credits can help lower-income
families build wealth.

Avoid Errors and Stress- Our taxpayers get their taxes done correctly the first time. Our
volunteers are trained and certified in tax law, and our quality review process helps ensure
error-free tax returns.

How We Do It
