Volunteer Income Tax Program now completing 2017 taxes

The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is now completing 2017 income taxes free-of-charge for people with low to modest income and a simple tax situation. This can include seniors, students, social assistance recipients and newcomers to Canada. The volunteer program does not complete returns for people who are deceased, bankrupt, or have business, farming or rental income. Assistance to complete past year tax returns is also available.

In order to be eligible to receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement, Carbon Tax Rebate, GST Tax Credit, Canada Child Tax Benefit, or the Working Income Tax Benefit, your 2017 tax return must be filed. Income taxes are due by April 30.

To find out if you are eligible for this program or to make an appointment, please contact your local FCSS office:
