#MiamiTech has been used for the Miami-based technology startup scene for over a decade, and is supported by groups from @RefreshMiami through Miami Mayor Suarez. During the recent #HowCanIHelp message from Mayor Francis Suarez, #MiamiTech has become a dominate message for the entire South Florida technology ecosystem.

As the largest and most culturally and economically important city in South Florida, Miami has become the hub of the business community. With a multilingual, multinational, and multiethnic core, Miami sits at the center of commerce between North America and South America.

Miami has a mixture of ethnic and hipster restaurants, with economically mixed neighborhoods. With a growing startup scene, Miami has rebuilt a modern city with a uniquely Miami cultural feel.

To kick off Pride Month, we're bringing you a special tax tip Tuesday. On this one, we are going to go over the adoption credit. Now, obviously, the adoption credit applies to anyone who adopts a child. It is not strictly for the LGBTQIA+ community. It applies to everyone, but the LGBTQIA+ community does tend to make good use of this, so I wanted to do a high-level overview of the credit.

Miami Tech is pretty new on the scene, so if you haven't heard about it, let me introduce you to it through Twitter. We've talked about why people are moving to Florida in a recent social media round-up, but we have yet to talk about Miami Tech.
