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.
