Tax Preparation Assistance Starts March 24
Our volunteers work in partnership with Canada Revenue Agency to provide the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program.
This is for low-income individuals and families with simple tax requirements. The program runs weekday mornings only from March 24 to April 30, 2021.
This is a drop off and pick-up service, Monday-Friday mornings-830 am-1200 at JBCP, 547 Michigan. Once taxes are completed by a volunteer, participants will be advised and will need to make a pick- up appointment.
There is no one on-site able to help with taxes. Blank packages are available in the JBCP lobby.
To be eligible: single people must have an income under $35,000, couples an income under $45,000, and single parents must have an income under $35,000 plus $2,500 for each additional dependent.
Volunteers do not prepare complex returns, such as returns for individuals who:
- have self-employment income;
- have business or rental income and expenses;
- have capital gains or losses;
- have employment expenses;
- file for bankruptcy;
- are deceased persons;
- have interest income of more than $1,000.
