About Broward Tax Pro

Broward Tax Pro or formerly known as Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is an excellent opportunity for individuals and families to keep more of their money and save on tax preparation fees.

Hispanic Unity of Florida (HUF) has partnered with Code for America a nonprofit organization that believes government can work for the people, and by the people, in the digital age, starting with the people who need it most. GetYourRefund is a non-profit digital platform built by Code for America in partnership with IRS-certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites nationally.

Broward Tax Pro Preparation Service that was previously available in-person, now is fully online. It is the same high-quality service and expertise provided by certified tax professionals who understand clients’ needs and speak English, Spanish and Haitian Creole.

This service is provided by trained, qualified, tax professionals who will prepare taxes at no cost*, and determine an individual’s eligibility for special tax credits such as Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly and education credits to assist taxpayers in maximizing their returns refunds.

We also have a telephone hotline to serve as an informational and referral hub that provides service support for the virtual/online tax preparation service. This hotline also will answer questions general tax questions.

In the 2018 tax season, more than 6,000 Broward County taxpaying working families and individuals took advantage of our program and had their income taxes prepared by trained professionals. More than $6 million in taxes were refunded to working families.

*To be elegible for this free service, a family or an individual must have an annual household income of less than $66,000.
