Overview: During the coronavirus pandemic, many South Florida organizations who helped people file taxes in-person for free were struggling to transition to virtual tax assistance. In response, to help Florida citizens we launched GetYourRefund.org in Florida training 5 volunteer income assistance organizations and working with Code for America’s product team to help people file for their taxes. Code for South Florida was the first non-profit in the Code for America Network to lead a project that later led to funding for our national partner.
