Free income tax preparation clinics

It’s that time of year again!   It’s income tax time!   Almost every adult in Canada has to file an income tax return by April 30th, 2015.  To make absolutely sure, you can check the Canada Revenue Agency’s web page by clicking here. (Do you have to file a return?).

Sometimes, doing your tax return can be complicated.

If you need help, there are many organizations who are part of the Community Volunteer Income Tax Programme (CVITP).  These groups help people with low incomes to prepare their tax returns.
